Extreme fire danger prompted Pacific Gas & Electric Company to interrupt electricity service to thousands over the weekend, in order to reduce the risk of wildfire.
NSPR’s Marc Albert spoke with PG&E spokesman Paul Moreno about the company’s decision to trigger precautionary blackouts when dangerous fire weather conditions are occurring.
PG&E held a public forum about their new Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) program Tues evening at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Redding.
Another public forum about the shutoffs will be held at 6 p.m. Wed, June 12, at Manzanita Place, 1705 Manzanita Ave. in Chico.
