The historical legalities of it are complicated in CA, too. But, yes, high winds down trees, remote areas, and near infinite flammable material make shutting off high risk areas an effective mitigation strategy. This is the world we live in.

Edit: Bill, they're different power companies and different risk profiles mean different policies.

Argentinians are accustomed to this kind of catastrophes still with normal climate. Sub inversions of the governments and of the monopolian energy companies (Which in part, the owners of, are political's families) conduct to a usual burnouts of the transformers and then large energy shutdowns. This is why I made several years ago, my own energy reservoir.

No worries! My best mate (should practice while I'm on layover at LHR enroute holiday in Switzerland) is fairly senior in PGE's risk mitigation group, which makes him among others universally personas non gratas.

HAH!

I was the risk manager on a trading desk -- it's the first person the Jacobins go for after they've looted the wine cellar.

Generac stock is up 70% year to date. My son's neighbor had one installed after almost everyone in the neighborhood was burned out in the 2017 fires -- natgas hookup with propane backup.
