PG&E's top official resigned Thursday, seven months after the company's natural gas pipeline exploded in San Bruno, killing eight and destroying 38 homes.

Peter A. Darbee, chief executive officer and president of PG&E Corp., the parent company of the embattled utility, will leave the company on April 30, the company's board announced.

3. PG&E is not to be trusted
Ever. They've got a media blitz right now going for the so-called smart meters. PG&E supports them, so of course people should oppose them.

PG&E spends its money on misleading ballot initiatives, commercials, and golden parachutes, but they can't seem to find any money to maintain their infrastructure.
