SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 11, 2012

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacific Gas and Electric Company
(PG&E) announced today that it has been designated a 2013 Top 100 Military
Friendly Employer® by G.I. Jobs magazine. This is the second time the utility
has been included in the annual rankings, which are based on the strength of
company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior
military service, retention programs and company policies on National Guard
and Reserve service.

PG&E is committed to training veterans for today's energy industry jobs
through its PowerPathway™ career and technical training program. While open to
all qualified candidates, the program has completed six veterans-only courses
and plans to add two more in 2013. Of the 150 graduates of the veterans-only
courses, 72 percent have been hired by PG&E or other energy industry
companies. Overall, veterans have made up about 7 percent of PG&E hires since

PG&E also established a Veterans Employee Resource Group last year, designed
to educate, support and develop PG&E employees with military experience, as
well as their supporters. More than 260 employees have joined the group, which
is open to all employees regardless of veteran status.

"PG&E values the qualities that military service imparts on veterans,
including their innovative spirit and team-first mentality, as well as the
technical skills they developed while in uniform," said John Simon, senior
vice president of human resources for PG&E. "We're proud to provide veterans a
path to energy careers through our PowerPathway program. Then, once on board
at PG&E, we offer lasting support and encouragement through our employee
resource group. Veterans are invaluable members of the PG&E family—and will
continue to be for many generations."

Now in its 10th year, the Top 100 Military Friendly Employers® list is the
premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking
civilian employment. The list was compiled from a data-driven survey sample of
5,000 companies whose annual revenues exceeded $500 million.Ernst & Young LLP
independently tested the survey results that determined the 2013 list based
upon weightings and methodology established by G.I. Jobs magazine.
