California Software Company Executives Charged In Conspiracy To Defraud The Tennessee Valley Authority

Company Allegedly Sought More Than $300,000 in Fraudulent Incentive Payments from TVA Through Software Installation in Rutherford County Schools

NASHVILLE – A seven-count indictment unsealed Friday charged two Danville, California men with conspiracy to defraud the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) of more than $300,000, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Mary Jane Stewart for the Middle District of Tennessee. 

Anthony Gigliotti, 74, the CEO of Autonomic Software, Inc., (Autonomic) was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, three counts of mail fraud, and three counts of wire fraud.  Alexander Gigliotti, 36, the Vice President of Autonomic, was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud.  Both were arrested by U.S. Marshals in Danville, California on Friday and will appear in the Middle District of Tennessee at a later date for further proceedings. 

According to the indictment, Autonomic was a software company located in Danville, California, which provided a variety of software to private and public sector organizations.  In 2016, Autonomic installed power management software in Rutherford County school systems, in connection with TVA’s EnergyRight program, an incentive-based program designed to save energy and reduce costs through the installation of energy-saving software.  To be eligible for the energy conservation funds, customers were required to pay a portion of the software materials costs.

Instead of following the program requirements, Autonomic represented to the Rutherford County School District that schools would not incur any costs associated with the software installation.  Following the installation of the software, Autonomic submitted 47 invoices, totaling $588,240 to Lockheed Martin, the contract administrator of the EnergyRight program.  The invoices were made out to Rutherford County Schools and represented that each school incurred costs associated with Autonomic’s software installation.

Alexander Gigliotti also sent an email to a Lockheed Martin representative in support of seeking the incentive payments from TVA, with a breakdown of an invoice regarding purported costs incurred by Rutherford County Schools, claiming that the school paid $22 per computer related to software and $8 per computer related to support.  In fact, Rutherford County Schools did not incur any costs associated with any invoice from Autonomic.  Lockheed Martin then mailed incentive payments to Autonomic that corresponded to each invoice.

The Autonomic software failed to function as initially represented and approximately one year after the installation, Rutherford County Schools purchased energy saving software that could effectively quantify energy savings and which cost substantially less than Autonomic’s total purported materials costs.

The indictment also alleges that Anthony Gigliotti lied to TVA agents by falsely stating that Alexander Gigliotti was not involved in any of the previous TVA or school system work. 

If convicted, the defendants face up to 20 years in prison.

This case was investigated by the TVA Office of Inspector General and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Beth Myers.

An indictment is merely an accusation.  The defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

PG&E Announces Reward For Information On Metcalf Substation Attack$250,000 Reward Offered to Assist Law Enforcement Investigation

Release Date: April 10, 2014
Contact: PG&E External Communications (415) 973-5930
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) announced today that it is contributing a $250,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator(s) who fired gunshots that caused extensive damage to its Metcalf Transmission Substation near San Jose nearly one year ago.
Over the past year, PG&E's Electric Operations team has partnered closely with federal, state and local agencies to enhance the security of critical substations across its service territory. These efforts include:
• Security guards to provide 24/7 coverage;
• Trimming back undergrowth around substations to remove potential hiding places;
• Fencing and shielding to obstruct views and protect critical substation components;
• Enhanced camera technology; and
• Increased lighting.
"Today's economy and our quality of life depend on electricity. We are committed to taking aggressive action to ensure that our facilities are protected so we can continue to deliver safe, reliable and affordable service to our customers," said Geisha Williams, executive vice president of electric operations for PG&E. "Our job from day one was to work with law enforcement authorities to support their investigations. With this reward, we hope to bring the perpetrator or perpetrators to justice. We would also like to thank law enforcement for their exhaustive work with this case."
In addition to the actions PG&E has already taken at critical facilities, the company is investing approximately $100 million over the next three years on substation security for its highest priority facilities. Among other measures, PG&E's plans include enhanced intruder detection systems and buffer zones through additional fencing.
PG&E has also proactively partnered with other utilities and industry associations to share information and identify new and innovative ways to further protect the electric grid.
"PG&E has been a valuable partner to the electric power industry as we continuously work to apply the lessons learned from all incidents and threats to strengthen grid security and resiliency," said Jim Fama, vice president of energy delivery for the Edison Electric Institute. "Securing and protecting the electric grid are top priorities for the electric power industry. Significant investments are being made across the industry to improve security, and we continue to closely coordinate with federal, state, and local governments to enhance information sharing to better identify and respond to evolving physical and cyber security threats to the grid."

Energy Terrorism - Millions at risk via Stolen PG&E Maps

Energy Terrorism - Millions at risk via Stolen PG&E Maps

Enough documents stolen from Pete Bennett's laptop is likely in the hands of Terrorist
During a July 2011 excursion to Hillside Covenant Church Pete Bennett, his son Chase Bennett was stopped by CHP Officer Peck Lancaster/Lilac Drive just under the the 680 overpass located in Walnut Creek CA.

Unknown to Bennett was a warrant for his arrest had been issued in regards to his unpaid Child Support.  Unknown to Bennett was the connections between Hillside and former Safeway CEO Steve Burd who was a longtime member of Hillside Covenant Church. 

THE STOLEN PG&E Documents 

The below maps entrusted to Bennett as part of the his contract with PG&E were stored in his car when he arrested.  Church member Bob Britz and Keith Lynds came down from the church and Bennett thinking he could trust his new Church friends handed over his son, car and computers as he was heading to jail.

Unfortunately his son witnessed the arrest of his father.  That was last time he saw his son but later discovered that church members began a campaign of disruption, tactical harassment linked to District Attorney Mark Peterson, his brother Michael Peterson and his connections to Officer Stephen Tanabe recently arrested by the FBI.

This map will be the basis for arguing that the thousands of documents stored on Bennett's laptop match nearly every fire, sniper attacks, wildfire in PG&E Territory are the basis that a full blown terrorism campaign directed at PG&E is now connected to the debtor in possession financing connected to the private equity firms now choking up billions for the prize of the century.

One clear observation is PG&E has a target on their back.  When clear message for Bennett his life has been at risk ever since he was connected to the 9/11 computer virus called NIMDA 

Apologize to Pete Bennett? PG&E CEO apologizes for faulty website, fancy dinner, basically everything else

PG&E CEO apologizes for faulty website, fancy dinner, basically everything else

Pete Bennett former PG&E Programmer provided services related to the San Bruno Explosion, HydroTesting and software development.  

After the power went off for 800,000 Pacific Gas & Electric customers this week, the utility's CEO had a lot to apologize for.
During a press conference Thursday evening, CEO Bill Johnson took a conciliatory tone and expressed regret for the way the company's public safety power shutoff (PSPS) unfolded. PG&E proactively cut power to 800,000 customers (or an estimated 2.4 million people with the understanding that each customer represents about three residents on average) in an attempt to avoid the spread of wildfires during high winds.
"As a result of this, millions of people have been without a fundamental service they expect and deserve," said Johnson. "This is not how we want to serve you and not how we want to run our business."
Johnson went on to explain the decision was ultimately made with public safety in mind, though Gov. Gavin Newsom said Thursday that framing doesn't tell the whole story. He blamed years of "greed and neglect" at PG&E for putting Californians in this situation.
"It's decisions that were not made that have led to this moment in PG&E's history — it is not conditions," said Newsom during a press conference. "This is not, from my perspective, a climate change story so much as a story of greed and neglect."
Johnson's annual base salary is $2.5 million, as reported by the Sacramento Bee, and that's without counting shares in the company.
The CEO conceded PG&E "will very likely have to make this kind of decision again in the future," but admitted there is a lot the company could do better. He promised PG&E would work to communicate essential information sooner and more clearly.
Johnson apologized for a PG&E website that showed "inconsistent" and at time "incorrect" information. The website continually crashed due to a high volume of visitors.
He also promised workers were working to restore power as soon as possible. As of mid-day Thursday, 42,000 Bay Area customers were still without power — and more statewide. Johnson asked the public not to take out their frustrations on PG&E workers, who he said had been shot at, punched and cursed out in recent days.
"I do apologize for the hardship this has caused but I think we made the right call on safety," Johnson said.
Aside from his apologies at the public press conference, Johnson also found himself apologizing during an interview with The Chronicle Thursday. The paper revealed about a dozen of the company's employees on the natural gas side of the business were wining and dining with top customers at a Sonoma County vineyard just days before the massive statewide outages.
“I want to apologize to every one of our customers,” Johnson told The Chronicle. “Insensitive, inappropriate, tone deaf are the terms I would use to describe this.”

Pete Bennett Seeks Reward

After truck explosions, accidents, wildfires and explosions then Captain Skinner of Walnut Creek Police directs his subordinates to arrest Bennett. Now a former and unpaid PG&E programmer who knows events were murder and terrorism come together.

The Back Story of a Cop murder


Garnier and Suspect is BS 

Bennett stayed back to 20 years with events emanating from the loss of his cabinet and millwork busines linked to the murder of a witness in 1989.

Lining up careers by dates some obvious comparisons come to light. More to come.

Mayor Feinstein (1988)

The Death of Catherine Perata is one of the ways political power is destroyed.

Garnier and Suspect is BS 

In 2008 Bennett comes forward in a murder case near Senator Feinstein (SFPD), then Feinstein refuses constituent services to Bennett, then Richard Blum emerges being connected to Operation Varsity Blues.

Some of the PG&E issues span back decades where management lacked "Boots on the Ground" experience.  Some incidents lead directly to those pencil necked management consultants such as Accenture and their failed management projects.

Often in meetings over years of construction and software development I've heard the comments.  The simulations miss the mark all too often as support locations are there for logistics and need to be located near the customers and the incidents.  Each city needs depots, storage lots and acres of space for wire spools, trucks and spare telephone poles.
