Energy Supply Careers
The PG&E Energy Supply team manages a vast portfolio of available energy resources, with responsibility for over $8 billion of electric and gas transactions each year.
We are able to handle customers’ 24/7 demand for electricity by optimizing our resources in response to dynamic real-time needs that fluctuate with weather, weekends and time of day. This means ensuring that energy resources are not only available, but also cost efficient and in alignment with internal controls and regulatory requirements.
PG&E supplies electricity via our Diablo Canyon Power Plant and a fleet of hydro, fossil fuel and solar power plants. To further support our customers, we also have contracts with third-party providers that offer conventional gas and hydro resources, as well as solar, wind, geothermal, and bioenergy alternatives. The state of California requires that 33 percent of our energy supply must come from renewable resources by 2020, and we are on track to meet that goal.
We are designing and implementing a comprehensive, long-term energy resource strategy that can keep pace with California’s growth and development. Energy Supply careers at PG&E offer challenging opportunities for skilled professionals who can negotiate favorable contracts, plan ahead for our customers’ future needs, and otherwise ensure the availability of clean, reliable energy. It’s an exciting time for you join us.
