Can a local utilities company (PG&E) deny service to a customer ?
PG &E denied service because a prior tennant has outstanding balance.

If you can prove that you are not the prior tenant, they cannot refuse you service. You just need to go into your nearest PG&E office and tell them the situation.

No, this falls under the same thing as denying someone to be able to eat at a restaurant for their color. You just cant do it. This is also probably the main or only utility company in the area and them denying you essentials is a violation of human rights

I'm not sure they can deny service because of something that you didnt do. But they can charge you an outrageous connection fee. When I moved to my current address I got charged an outrageous deposit because of the prior tennants.

Any business can deny service. Especially if it is due to non payment.
