GRASS VALLEY, Calif. August 12, 2016 – As part of Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (PG&E) ongoing efforts to provide safe and reliable service to customers, utility workers will perform routine gas meter inspections in Nevada County starting August 15. The inspections are expected to last about three weeks.

PG&E employees and contractors with Alisto Engineering will be conducting inspections on foot with a mobile tablet, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. They will be wearing a hard hat, safety vest and carry photo identification, which they will present upon a customer’s request.

Gas meter inspections will occur in and around the Nevada County communities of Penn Valley, Grass Valley and Nevada City.

If a person claiming to be a PG&E employee or contractor shows you his or her identification and you still feel uncomfortable, call PG&E’s customer service line at 1-800-743-5000 to verify an appointment and/or PG&E’s presence in the community. PG&E employees and contractors will walk up to the gas meters at homes and businesses but will not enter homes during these inspections.

During inspections, customers may see a PG&E employee or contractor on or near their properties as they access the gas meter. This work will not affect gas service. In the event a meter cannot be accessed, PG&E will schedule a visit and inspect the meter on a future date.

Customers who have provided a current phone number to PG&E will receive a call prior to inspections.
