PG&E to Shut Off Power in Wind and Fire Danger
PG&E announced it is now drafting guidelines for shutting off power during high fire danger or high winds.
Matt Nauman said, "Any temporary shut-offs would likely happen during California's summer and fall fire season, and would be done in coordination with officials and with public notice... Turning off electric power lines can have an immediate and broad impact on public safety."
"At the same time, we recognize that there may be situations in which proactively turning off electric power lines is warranted," Nauman said.
State utility regulators held at least one public hearing earlier this year studying the usefulness of shutting power to select areas during times of high winds and parched brush and grass.
