SAN BRUNO — PG&E reported Wednesday that its top executives, including the chief executive officer, all received pay raises during 2014, a year tarnished by a criminal indictment of the utility for a fatal explosion in San Bruno and an email scandal that documented cozy ties between the company and its primary regulator.

Anthony Earley, chief executive officer of PG&E, captured total compensation of $11.6 million in 2014, up 13.7 percent from 2013, according to a new regulatory filing on Wednesday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Christopher Johns, president of Pacific Gas and Electric, the utility arm of PG&E, earned $6 million in total compensation last year, up 44.1 percent from 2013.

San Francisco-based PG&E also awarded pay raises to its chief financial officer, general counsel, and its human resources chief, the annual compensation filing, also known as a proxy statement, disclosed.
