SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gung Hey Fat Choy! Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will participate in several Lunar New Year celebrations, where it will provide diverse communities with information on the company’s energy efficiency programs and the newly launched PG&E’s Solar Choice program.

PG&E is now able to offer all residential and business customers a chance to be a part of California’s clean energy future. PG&E’s Solar Choice program extends the option for 100 percent solar power – all locally sourced in Northern and Central California – to customers who are not planning to install rooftop solar panels.

PG&E recognized the importance of in-language services a century ago when it opened its first payment office in San Francisco’s Chinatown in 1905. In 2013, PG&E became the first utility in California providing energy statements in Chinese.

Additionally, PG&E’s customer service hotline provides support in 190 languages through over-the-phone interpretation services.
