PG&E Corporation
Presented to Anthony F. Earley Jr.

Supporting the environment, and fostering economic and community vitality are the goals of the PG&E Solar Habitat Program, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Providing renewable energy to hardworking families helps keep home ownership affordable. Over the last nine years, with the support of thousands of PG&E employee volunteers, the program has brought solar to more than 500 Habitat homes in Northern and Central California, saving each of those families an average of $500 annually on their energy costs.
