PG&E: The Most Corrupt Power Utility in the US? 

PG&E was under fire last year for causing most of the forest fires, including the largest and most damaging forest fire in history.

This year, because of all the lawsuits from the previous years, PG&E is cutting power for up to a week at a time during periods of "extremely high fire risk"

Instead of, y'know, _maintaining their fucking power lines._ :blobnotlike:

They're gonna shut off my home office tomorrow. :blobfrowningbig:

@mawr this is the end of the world as we know it, and we don’t feel fine

:yikes:

re: PG&E: The Most Corrupt Power Utility in the US? 

@mawr They are doing it to you guys too? FFFFF

re: PG&E: The Most Corrupt Power Utility in the US? 

@wobblewuffess nooo that was just bad wording. They're cutting off the Scotts Valley office starting tonight

re: PG&E: The Most Corrupt Power Utility in the US? 

@mawr Oooh... yeah.. yup... several of my coworkers are getting cut... we are very close to a possible outage area... so who knows.

@mawr hmm

re: PG&E: The Most Corrupt Power Utility in the US? 

@mawr i thought utilities were legally required to do everything in their power to maximise uptime

re: PG&E: The Most Corrupt Power Utility in the US? 

@Felthry PG&E bought a governor a few years ago so they've found ways to get out of all those legalities.

They're too big a company to be run ethically or effectively- they should be nationalized, or at the very least split up IMHO.
