PG&E At The PUC Today

Today, top executives of PG&E are expected at an emergency meeting to answer hard questions by state regulators about a massive pre-emptive power shutdown criticized as poorly executed and unacceptable. The meeting of the California Public Utilities Commission in San Francisco comes as outrage grows against PG&E's Public Safety Power Shutoffs last week in their efforts to prevent wildfires.

Claim Filing Deadline

The deadline to file a claim against PG&E for damages or losses from the 2017 wildfires is Monday 10/21/19 at 5pm. Only about a third of the people affected by the fires have filed claims so far.

Cannabis Appellation

In the same way wine lovers know their favorites by the location of the vineyards, cannabis users are asking for the same information. Governor Newsom has signed legislation written by State Senator Mike McGuire that will prevent cannabis suppliers from labeling their products with false origins of the cannabis.

PG&E Shut Off's Explanation

PG&E has released their report on reasons for the power shut offs last week. The company says they considered many factors to protect the public from potential wildfires ignited by PG&E's equipment due to weather. Sonoma County experienced the strongest winds in the Bay Area with gusts up to 77 mph. The National Weather Service issued multiple Red Flag Warnings that lasted from Wednesday afternoon until Friday morning. PG&E has documented over 100 incidents of damage where wildfire could have occured if the lines had been energized. (photo courtesy PG&E)
