  1. How many of the “public safety” (sic) power shutoffs are we expected to take? The massive nature of them is absolutely ridiculous, and please spare me the smarmy “do you want more fires?!” garbage. We’re looking at many billions in losses from the power shutoffs alone! They are not painless, and definitely not a mere “inconvenience.” LEGITIMATE power shutoffs are surgical, not carpet bombing like PG&E has been doing.

  2. I am actually coming to believe that – perhaps subconsciously – the swine who fill their bloated bellies at PG&E’s corporate trough are doing it this way intentionally, as ‘payback’ for having been sued into bankruptcy for all the wrongful death and property losses they have caused.

    In my opinion, the entire utility ought to be seized by the State Of California and run as a State Agency – at no profit – for the benefit of the people of California. Government salaries are capped at *FAR* below the millions that PG&E executives make (not to mention the Bonuses they vote themselves every year). Rates would drop, and the state would have an absolute responsibility to ensure public safety by properly upgrading and maintaining the infrastructure of the Grid, unlike the corporate swine presently profiting from the misery of ratepayers.

  3. Really! What about families that dont have the money for generators to have heat with no fire places or wood stoves? Elderly people with no power to heat their homes with out the money to but generators is absolutely ridiculous! People are getting sick this is not okay! We pay our Bill’s to not have power for days and in hope to look forward to being warm at night tonight and now it’s up in the air again!
    TURN OUR POWER BACK ON ALREADY! SO EVERYTIME THE WIMD BLOWS WE HAVE TO EXPECT TO HAVE NO POWER FOR DAYS UNTIL MOTHER EARTH STOP WAVING HER HAIR AROUND OR WHAT!
