Does PG&E New Shutdown Policy Affect You?

Last weekend, PG&E shut down a number of residential areas in the area as a preventative measure for fire season. This could be the norm with its new policy. Educate yourself on PG&E’s new shutdown policy, how it could affect you, and what you can do to make sure your home isn’t compromised by a grid shutdown.

The recent string of wildfires the past few years have been partially attributed to PG&E power lines. Having declared bankruptcy amid billions in lawsuits, the company has decided their lines won’t contribute to the sparking or spreading of wildfires if they’re simply not turned on.

Are Rolling Blackouts Necessary?

Public utilities say they are. Last year, PG&E power lines were attributed to helping to spark the Camp Fire, which killed 85 people and burned 20,000 structures last summer. Last weekend, PG&E announced that it may shut off power in several North State counties (including Solano and Napa) on Saturday to help reduce the risk of wildfire.The utility said that the potential power shut-offs could be within the next 18-36 hours.
