Building and renovation projects are subject to many standards. The State of California issues plumbing, electrical and mechanical codes. Each city and county has its own ordinances.
You’re responsible for securing all required permits and arranging for inspections. PG&E verifies that you have met these requirements and may perform additional inspections before connecting your gas or electric service.
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) regulates the installation and delivery of gas and electric services. PG&E does not establish services until gas piping and electric services facilities conform to CPUC regulations. In addition to CPUC regulations, PG&E has further standards to ensure that we provide safe and reliable power.
