Is Your California Business in Need of a Power Analysis? Part 2

In a previous post, we discussed the growing prevalence of blackouts in California. Not only are blackouts being caused by aging equipment and wild weather, but utilities now feel emboldened to cut power to businesses and homes at any time with impunity.

Power analysis experts note that millions of people have been affected by planned shutoffs. These shutoffs are often intended to reduce wildfire risk during periods of combined heat and high wind. Unfortunately, they have been marked by carelessness:

  • The public often hears about Public Safety Power Shutoffs only 24 hours in advance or less

  • Utilities fail to communicate clearly about who will be affected by shutoffs and for how long

  • Businesses catering to at-risk individuals, such as hospitals, are disproportionately impacted

Planned utility shutdowns are a symptom of aging, unreliable equipment – but they can also compound that very same problem. Every time the power is cut or restored to your California business, it can damage your building systems – causing circuit breakers, wiring, and other elements to overload.
