The presentation for our September 12th luncheon is about our major power company, PG&E. Our speaker, Jim McKenna worked for PG&E for 35 years. Jim will cover many aspects of the company including its general history, a description of PG&E‘s power delivery system including generation, transmission, and distribution. He will also talk about hiring, training, safe work procedures and future expectations.
Jim will address such topics as the comparison of overhead vs. underground service, why the lab is not a PG&E customer, why do your lights sometimes fail and then come back on, and how does PG&E know when "your" power fails.
Jim served in the navy from 1956 to 1960 and is a graduate of St. Mary's college in Moraga. Jim joined PG&E’s Electric Department in 1961. Throughout his 35 years with PG&E he held many jobs ranging from lineman and journeyman to electrical superintendent and operations manager. At PG&E Jim was a pioneer in developing safer working practices.
After he retired from PG&E Jim had a second career as a consulting contractor serving major electric utility companies. In this job he traveled the world to lend his expertise for fixing major electrical problems
In 2010 he returned to PG&E as a senior instructor at the apprentice lineman training academy in Livermore. Earlier this year he was honored as the first PG&E employee inducted into the international Lineman Museum of Fame, joining 50 inductees including Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla.
