PG&E is an investor-owned utility, which means it operates for profit first, not people. By putting this utility in public hands, we can cut out the need for shareholders to profit and lower rates for everyone.

Energy is a basic necessity. PG&E's shut-offs are the result of this profit motive and weigh heaviest on the backs of poor and working people. Public ownership can end this.

By giving PG&E's workers a significant ownership share of the utility, they are better positioned to enact standards that are safer for themselves and for ratepayers.
