PG&E is my local electric and gas company. They are pretty big, maybe most of California, or so. We got a letter in the mail the other day saying that they will cut all power to the grid in any areas that are deemed a fire hazard. We pretty much live in an extreme fire hazard for the months of June through October, so now I am really curious what this actually means. They don't actually say it in the letter, just giving a friendly heads up! I found this, Community Wildfire Safety Program - PG&E Commitment Does anyone care to take a guess what the heck it means? I didn't really want to put solar on this house, since we are planning on being out of here in 8 years or less, but I might have to bite the bullet and go for it.
