Geisha Williams resigned as Pacific Gas and Electric faces possibly billions of dollars in liabilities and possible murder charges.

Embattled utility PG&E, facing potentially billions of dollars in liability over California's deadly wildfires last year, has replaced its CEO.

The largest utility in the drought-plagued Golden State has struggled to reduce fire risks. Its equipment keeps igniting blazes, threatening the company’s future.

Geisha Williams, the PG&E Corp. chief executive who led California’s largest investor-owned utility during some of the most turbulent times in its history, has stepped down, the company said Sunday evening. Williams had been at the helm of the San Francisco energy company for less than two years. John Simon, who had previously been PG&E’s executive vice president and general counsel, will succeed her on an interim basis while the board of directors searches for a long-term replacement. Williams has already resigned from the boards of PG&E Corp. and its utility subsidiary Pacific Gas and Electric Co.
