Investigation Into PG&E's Seventh Standard Substation Project (I.11-06-010)

On June 10, 2011, the CPUC opened a penalty consideration case against PG&E alleging that PG&E failed to comply with certain environmental mitigation measures in its construction of the Seventh Standard Substation Project. CPUC staff alleges that PG&E did not complete required surveys during specific time windows, did not obtain environmental awareness training for all laborers, and did not notify the CPUC prior to construction in order for the CPUC's environmental monitors to ensure project compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act. On December 9, 2011, the CPUC issued a Proposed Decision that would approve a settlement between the CPUC's Consumer Protection and Safety Division and PG&E, resolving the investigation. PG&E would make a settlement payment to the State of California General Fund in the amount of $100,000, and a donation to the Endangered Species Recovery Program at Stanislaus State University in the amount of $50,000.  The first opportunity the CPUC has to consider the Proposed Decision is in January 2012. On January 12, 2012, the CPUC fined PG&E $100,000 for failure to comply with certain environmental mitigation measures in its construction of the Seventh Standard Substation in northwest Bakersfield.  In addition, PG&E will make a donation of $50,000 to the Endangered Species Recovery Program at California State University, Stanislaus.
