I wonder how long it'll be until the enviroterrorists, nature freaks and other assorted zealots will get their puppets (the court system) to outlaw the use of generators during planned power outages.https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/arti...n-off-power-Wednesday-California-14552778.php
My county is the most affected in California.
Generator sales are exploding here-abouts. :smile:
That’s actually one of the reasons it’s difficult to trim trees in many locations. Regulations from cities and counties conflict with what the FD want done. Have had customers get fined by the FD for not clearing and/or trimming trees, only to have their permits denied by the city or county, because you can’t harm the tree.I wonder how long it'll be until the enviroterrorists, nature freaks and other assorted zealots will get their puppets (the court system) to outlaw the use of generators during planned power outages.
I live in California and hate to admit it. It's not just a drain on the entire USA it's a drain on the people who live here. The cost of living is very high and taxes are ridiculous. I tried to retire to another state but missed my family especially my grand kids so I ended up moving back. It's a beautiful state mainly due to the weather and coast line but it's a real struggle living here.It is California honestly nobody cares. Other than some nice golf courses and wine country the rest of the state is just a drain on the USA.
It was back in the 90's, California and Texas (remember Enron?) deregulated their electrical utilities. It was a little confusing at the time, it was billed as a way to allow for competition in utilities. In hindsight it looks like of course it was not someone trying to help consumers, it was just another way for financiers, investors, bankers, and their bean counting minions to shuffle money and gut something of value.Let's go back about ten years when they either broke up the poco or did something or another regarding electricity and then everybody said - wait ten years and it will all be a broken system.
