Shader: Shutting off power is unacceptable

In regard to the recent Pacific Gas and Electric power shut off which lasted in our area for 40 hours, I suggest maintaining power lines and trimming trees would be much more cost effective for not only the residents, but for PG&E as well.

The amount of billing lost must be more expensive than tending to their own responsibilities.

Shutting off power for two days to hundreds of people, spoiling their food and preventing them from bathing is unacceptable.

If PG&E desires a corner on the market, I support them in treating the market with much more respect and a little more forethought.

We’ve gone totally solar so PG&E pays us now. Maybe if more Lake County residents do the same, we can send PG&E the message they so badly need to hear: “We are sick of your abuses, and we aren’t taking it any more!”

Stop burning down our beautiful county. Maintain your lines, PG&E.
