California's PG&E to Shut Power to Some Customers Again!

Who the hell is running Pacific Gas and Electric, Nicol├ís Maduro?

PG&E is again moving to turn off the power to swaths of Northern California.

Officials began notifying more than 200,000 customer accounts across 16 counties that their power may be preemptively shut off some time during this week as the result of weather conditions. The National Weather Service issued a fire-weather watch for parts of the region starting at noon Wednesday which will last until 4 p.m. Thursday.

Exact days and times of power outages have yet to be provided, reports The San Francisco Business Times.

In the Bay Area, the counties on the list were San Mateo, Napa and Sonoma. Specifically, these will include the following towns:

San Mateo: Emerald Hills, Half Moon Bay, La Honda, Loma Mar, Pescadero, Portola Valley, Rackerby, Redwood City, San Gregorio, Woodside

Napa: Angwin, Calistoga, Deer Park, Lake Berryessa, Napa, Oakville, Pope Valley, Rutherford, St Helena, Yountville

Sonoma: Annapolis, Boyes Hot Springs, Cloverdale, Fulton, Geyserville, Glen Ellen, Guerneville, Healdsburg, Kenwood, Larkfield, Santa Rosa, Sonoma, Windsor.

The only solution is to pull the monopoly grant given by the state to PG&E and allow competition.

  1. Similar scenario in SoCal. SDG&E has been shutting down power to 19 communities consisting of 30K customers.

    We have had these “red flag warnings” since I can remember. Now for a number of reasons the power is being shut off when Santa Ana winds blows. When I am wearing my tin-foil hat I smell climate change propaganda. The communities that are affected are rural and comparatively lightly populated compared to those that are not having their power cut, but everyone hears about it. What they hear is that climate change is a big part of the cause and is going to cause longer and more frequent outages in the future.

    Climate change is the ultimate tool against freedom. All mainstream solutions are for more government control. It affects everyone. And its complexity is beyond our current comprehension. Perfect for the tyrants.

  2. Well since the customers have no recourse these are good opportunities to prep for a no grid scenario. Cali is likely the place it happens first.

  3. I thought power compies were obligated to provide power if they have the ability to do so. How is turning power off going to help anything? Even if severe weather happens with the power off, if it is a bad storm, it will still cause damage regardless of wheather the power is on or off. They need to be sued.
