We reported yesterday that up to 3 million Californians could lose power as a result of unprecedented blackouts by PG&E being put in place as safety measures.
We noted that in the face of hot, windy weather that raises the risk of wildfires, the company will shut down power for a portion of the state and undertake extensive inspections of its equipment before turning electricity back on, meaning outages could persist into next week.
More than 3 million people may be eventually affected, based on city estimates and the average household size. The economic impact may reach $2.6 billion.
