OH NO!

Maybe PG&E did this just so they couldn't get blamed for fires like they were last time.

Hey, you can't blame us...we shut down!

It's probably illegals setting fires every time it gets windy.

Preemptive outages loom across a “vast” swath of Northern and Central California this week, PG&E warned, adding that a “strong and dry wind event” forecast for midweek could prompt the utility to shut down power in as many as 30 counties in an effort to stave off wildfire risk.

“It could take several days to fully restore power after the weather passes and safety inspections are completed,” said Michael Lewis, PG&E senior vice president of electric operations.

The govenor was awash with ideas also
"After we shut off the power we can begin to force through our "Power Tax" to prevent power outages and divert it
to illegal aliens and drug addicts just like we just did the gas tax"

Blame the California Public Utlities Commission

They set the rates, force PG&E to buy "clean" power produced at far above market rates (this include excess solar from a million homes), force them to "Donate" to hundreds of "Progressive Action" groups, and approved every single budget for the past 30 years.

In order to keep rates "low" to the consumer, CPUC scrimped on the maintenance budget...75% or more of a massive utility's costs. More money for graft that way.

When combined with a second offensive by the CalEPA to restrict clearing on their rights of way, they killed the largest public utility in America.

PG&E is facing at least $30bil in fire judgements and $100bil in maintenance backlog. Officers of the company have been threatened with criminal liability.

They ABSOLUTELY made the right decision to hit the off switch.

Here is a map of the possible areas that could face a power shutoff.

They are remote, rural and rugged areas.

[link to www.sfgate.com (secure)]

Cities, per se, are not affected. Some parts of San Jose are rural.

I've read that, at most, 600,000 people could be affected.

What an idiot.

If they shut off power to San Jose and the rest of the Bay Area - bedlam, chaos, madness.


I feel this is a test run for causing chaos in the entire country.


I used to work for PGE, in the center of the State.


It was a very well organized company back in the 90's.

Of course that has been 18 more years of progressive madness since then, I have no idea how badly the co. might be screwed up now.

I am in that area, our well runs on electric, we had a PGE BS fiasco lat week for two days no power it was screwed.

Since when did the American Government allow Rothschilds to control the power grid preemptively?

What a crock, I'm outta here, California has gotten on my last nerve, Fucking Rothschilds, Pelosi, Senator Pan fucker, Adam Schitt and pretty face Newsom I hope you all have fun with the disaster area you have made of my once fair state...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76130010


Last year whole cities burnt down and the fire moved so fast that people didn't have enough warning time to escape. I'm guessing you weren't impacted by it or you probably wouldn't be complaining about going without power for 5-7 days to prevent another catastrophe. Very small price to pay in comparison. Like one vs infinity.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 67437617


But the absence of power will create many other potential ignition points for fires... outdoor cooking, campfires, generators running, the lack of pressurized water to contain a small fire, etc. Add to this the bad actors that might realize that overwhelmed police might not respond quickly to a little old-fashioned arson.
 Quoting: Azaziah

None of this can be directly blamed on PG&E though.
This is all a response for PG&E having to pay billions for the Paradise fire a couple of years ago.

This is all true. That company was being dismantled back in the 90's and before. Two guys in their garage could declare themselves a power utility, and PGE would have to let them use PGE lines to "deregulate" the State.

Be interesting to see what happens in Oakland if they cut off power to parts of town that have large numbers of Section 8 tenants or other types of subsidized housing.

Hope businesses in Oakland spent the day moving their merchandise out of their stores ... because even if they are on a block that keeps it's power the police are going to be so overwhelmed that there is likely to be ZERO response to a call if things start to go South on the business's particular block.

The fires are all secret arson anyways.

The problem with that theory is that PG&E isn't the only utility company shutting off power. SDG&E, which provides power to San Diego, already informed many residents that their power would be cut, and SoCal Edison is shutting off power in L.A. County. More than 26,000 residents there are currently without power and the number is expected to rise.
