Bowing to pressure from Gov. Gavin Newsom, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. will provide some form of compensation to people affected by widely criticized mass power outages the utility implemented earlier this month.

Bill Johnson, CEO of the utility’s parent PG&E Corp., said Tuesday that the company had considered Newsom’s request to provide rebates or credits to residents and small businesses blacked out starting Oct. 9, and decided to offer a one-time credit to people affected by those shutoffs.
