|Opportunity Title||PG&E Undergrounding Work – 10,000 Mile Program|
On July 22, 2021, PG&E announced its commitment to underground 10,000 miles of electric lines to help reduce the risk of major wildfires and address the challenge of climate change. This work is unprecedented and represents the largest effort in the U.S. to underground power lines as a wildfire risk reduction measure.
We seek partners in thought and action, with courage and conviction, that will challenge us, share our commitment, and co-create what will become the country’s most modern and expansive underground electric system. This effort will require PG&E to increase the pace and volume of work required to meet the undergrounding of overhead lines, while meeting our commitment to a diverse and inclusive supply chain. Diverse suppliers include small business enterprises (SBE) and enterprises owned by women (WBE), minorities (MBE), service-disabled veterans (DVBE), and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals (LGBTBE).
