First this fire near Cabbage Patch - then a fire outside of White Pines Lake. Suspicious in my book.

        Bill To Cover PG&E's Neglect Of Right Of Ways
        Posted on: 2018-09-07 09:47:25   By: Anonymous
         
        Bill To Cover PG&E's Neglect Of Right Of Ways

        A bill was passed the last day of the Ca legislative session that reduces financial liability for PG&E from it's responsibility to clear it's right of ways to reduce the hazard of trees contacting it's distribution lines, which has caused many serious fires in the last few years of note, the Butte fire. Our Ca state tax would be increased to cover PG&E's neglect of it's responsibility to keep right of ways properly maintained to avoid fires from trees contacting power lines.

        News Article


        The legislation also includes a controversial aspect that allows utility companies like PG&E to raise electric bills to cover the costs associated with wildfires. It is a practice that has been prohibited under state law, and the change comes after the utility raised concerns that lawsuits from last year’s wine country fires could create financial ruin. Opponents say it is basically a government handout for PG&E. Lawmakers argued, however, that rate increases would be more beneficial to customers in the long run than the utility going into bankruptcy.

        I questioned the ACRT forester as to why the trees are not cleared further from the PG&E distribution lines, I wanted more aggressive marking of trees on my property , his reply was "PG&E is limiting the clearance they can prescribe".
        If PG&E is limiting clearances, which will allow more fires, then PG&E should not be allowed to raise our electricity rates , because of claims from their lines causing fires.Our taxes also should not rise to protect the utility either. This seems to be extortion on the utility's part , when they could greatly reduce their liability exposure by reducing fuels coming in contact with their power lines , by more aggressive clearing of right of ways.
        When traveling in the eastern US, South, much greater clearances are seen, power interruptions from ice storms, not fire is the reason, the utilities do maintain further clearances than PG&E does with fires causing much more costs, destruction than power disruptions due to ice on trees.

        Governor Brown needs to hear a unified NO by Ca taxpayers to this bill, for the reason that PG&E is skirting it's PUC responsibilities to provide adequate clearances for it's power line distribution system in order to maximize it's profits and stockholder dividends.Ca taxpayers should not pay for PG&E's wanton neglect to increase profits.
