"Could selling PG&E to its customers help solve California’s power problems?" PBS NewsHour 11/7/2019

SIDE COMMENT:  Years ago PG&E made an attempt to merge with our local utility SDG&E, thankfully it was turned down.


SUMMARY:  During California’s recent wildfires, the intentional blackouts PG&E implemented to reduce danger frustrated residents.  The utility’s poorly maintained infrastructure is blamed for at least five previous fires.  Now, the mayors of over a dozen California cities are suggesting PG&E should be sold to its customers.  William Brangham talks to San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, who first proposed the plan.
