PG&E Corporation (NYSE:PCGis down 7% in premarket trading as it has been reported that the embattled utility giant reported a second power outage the morning of November 8th when the ongoing California “Camp Fire” began. The news came in a report filed with the California Public Utilities Commission. This comes after PG&E skyrocketed 40% late last week on news that California’s Public Utility Commission “couldn’t imagine bankruptcy”. Commenting on the case, Brad Sadek of Sadek and Cooper, a bankruptcy and foreclosure defense law firm based in Philadelphia, said that how PG&E will emerge from its current debacle is still up in the air. “As a public utility, PG&E may get bailed out with taxpayer funds in order to avoid bankruptcy. The question is what happens to California’s state budget in that event. Bankruptcy,” Sadek continued, “wouldn’t be the end of PG&E though,” noting that PG&E Company, the utility, also went bankrupt in 2001 and emerged from that bankruptcy in 2004.
