Gavin Newsom is willing to throw the state’s major utilities a financial lifeline in the face of expensive wildfires — but only if they agree to concessions including tying executive compensation to safety performance. A proposal unveiled Friday, June 21, 2019, by Newsom’s office aims to stabilize California’s investor-owned utilities and protect wildfire victims as the state faces increasingly destructive blazes, often caused by utility equipment. Pacific Gas & Electric Corp., the largest of the state’s three investor-owned utilities, filed for bankruptcy in January as it stared down tens of billions of dollars in potential costs fires it started, including the fire last November that killed 85 people.
