Ask anyone in California’s forested communities if they would tolerate more blackouts in exchange for preventing devastating wildfire. The answer is likely a simple yes.
However, local residents complain that a new, experimental system installed on its circuit breakers in fire-prone areas to more aggressively disconnect electricity to prevent forest fires has created an intolerable situation. PG&E reported 329 unplanned blackouts caused by the new âFast Tripâ system since it was installed in late July – an average of about 36 blackouts per week.
