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 rules. PG&E has further standards to ensure that we provide safe and reliable power, and requires your project to adhere to all standards in our Greenbook. For PG&E standards please visit our Greenbook Manual online.
Check with your licensed contractor, your PG&E assigned representative, and your city or county to determine if your project will require permits.

Note: You’re responsible for securing all required permits and arranging inspections. We verify that you’ve 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.
