If you’re reading this from Northern California, you’re one of the lucky ones!
Recent behavior by our local electric utility, Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) shows that you simply can’t trust them to provide the service they get paid for.
PG&E has had problems for many years now. It recently started a Chapter 11 bankruptcy process after being found largely responsible for the devastating 2018 Camp Fire.
The Camp Fire has been described as the deadliest and most destructive fire in Golden State history. An investigation determined maintenance practices on PG&E equipment were partly at fault for igniting the blaze, in which more than 80 people were killed and over 150,000 acres burned.
That leads us to the situation Californians are facing today.
