PG&E To Upgrade Substation Security

June 18, 2014 10:07 pm

Pacific Gas and Electric says it will spend millions of dollars to upgrade security following last year’s sniper attack. Someone opened fire on a substation in April of last year. Authorities say whoever was behind the attack also cut communication lines which affected cell phone and 911 service. More than $100 million will be spent over the next three years to protect substations throughout Northern and Central California. Meantime, electricity and natural gas rates could go up under a proposal issued by PG and E this evening could allow rates to raise as much as 7.5%. PG and E says the increase would actually be well below that. The extra money would pay for safety, maintenance and repairs.
