The San Francisco-based utility estimates $6.2 billion to $6.3 billion of costs this year related to wildfires.
The brand new 5,200-square-foot home is powered by 20 solar panels that are hooked up to two Tesla Powerwalls — essentially batteries that can keep the power going for at least seven days during an outage.
Newsom also reiterated the state would consider a potential takeover of the utility if the bankruptcy is not resolved by June 30.
More than a dozen California mayors have joined a coalition proposing a buyout of the bankrupt utility.
President Trump tells Gov. Gavin Newsom to "get your act together."
Here are some of the industries at the mercy of the wildfires.
The California utility giant is working to restore power.
Frustration and anger mounted across Northern California as Pacific Gas & Electric began its third round of sweeping blackouts in a week.
The country's largest public utility shut off power for more customers on Tuesday.
Forecasters say all the elements are in place for a powerful new round of Southern California's notorious Santa Ana winds, the withering gusts with a long history of turning sparks into infernos.
Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. said its latest blackout will start early Tuesday and affect 605,000 homes and businesses in 29 Northern California counties.
The company said it had restored power to more than 325,000 of the 970,000 customer accounts impacted by the blackouts as of 4:30 p.m. PT.
Underground power lines can costs millions of dollars per mile.
Newsom's 2018 campaign took $58,400 from PG&E, and the political spending group "Citizens Supporting Gavin Newsom for Governor 2018" took $150,000.
PG&E acted after the National Weather Service warned that historically strong winds on Saturday and Sunday would “bring extreme fire weather conditions” in Northern California.
PG&E's market capitalization fell to $2.93 billion Friday morning, near a record low.
PG&E expects all of its customers to be returned to full power despite a broken transmission line found by the wildfires ravaging Sonoma County.
The utilities have said the precautionary blackouts are designed to keep winds that could gust to 60 mph (97 kph) or more from knocking branches into power lines or toppling them, sparking wildfires.
PG&E are deliberately cutting power to 17 California counties to avoid the catastrophic wildfires that left 85 dead in last year's Camp Fire.
PG&E warns of potential second planned California blackout.
