As the Golden State prepares to host the golden anniversary of one of the most anticipated sporting events all year, PG&E is doing its part to ensure that residents and visitors celebrating Super Bowl 50 in the Bay Area have access to safe, reliable and clean energy.
In fact, PG&E has been planning and preparing for Super Bowl 50 for more than a year.
To prepare for the events leading up to the Super Bowl as well as the game itself, the company is partnering with all lines of business, taking a one PG&E approach to ensure the company is truly ready when the crowds arrive for this special event.
PG&E is relying on advanced technologies like infrared circuit testing and the Picarro leak detection system to complete detailed inspections of gas and electric facilities.
While the Picarro technology offers a sensitive analysis, PG&E continues to utilize foot patrol inspections of gas lines as an added measure of precaution.
Thanks to the hard work of more than 22,000 employees, PG&E is proudly doing its part to ensure that Super Bowl 50 is a success.
“For me personally, this is a unique experience,” PG&E emergency management director Jason Regan said. “My first job was selling polish hotdogs at Candlestick Park. It’s a once in a lifetime experience.”
Senior gas compliance representative Javi Contreras said he’s excited to be involved in the planning and preparation for such a major event.
“I never expected working at PG&E to be involved in Super Bowl 50,” he said. “It’s a great experience and it’s awesome to see the community coming together and PG&E taking the extra steps to make sure the community is safe.”
