California Could Make Utilities Pay For Some Blackout Costs

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – A bill in the state Legislature would require electric companies to reimburse customers when they turn off the power to prevent wildfires. Large electric utilities have been aggressively shutting off power for millions of customers ahead of windstorms to stop wildfires before they start. A bill by state Sen. Scott Wiener would require them to reimburse customers and local governments for some costs. It would also let state regulators fine electric utilities if they determine the shutoffs were not reasonable and prudent. A letter from PG&E to state lawmakers says the bill would put customers and communities in a dangerous position.
