PG&E's Electrical Service is 3rd World
Original post made by No Juice Again, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Sep 19, 2013
Once again we get hit by an extended PG&E electrical outage. This is the forth time this year for us. The previous three times have been due to blown transformers, and odds are that this latest outage was due to the same cause. If PG&E was doing even a mediocre job of preventive maintenance, these blown transformers would not be happening. PG&E not doing needed maintenance, even though our cost per kw is among the very highest in the nation, is outrageous. People need to raise hell with the California PUC, even though that has typically not been to effective as the PUC has traditionally rubber-stamped most everything PG&E asks for (did someone whisper influence peddling?). People for sure need to raise hell with the Democrats that control the State Legislature. This 3rd-world electrical reliability, at Lamborghini prices, has got to stop. Think "I'M MAD AS HELL AND I AM NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE" and then call your state legislators and Gov. Moonbeam.
