There was a time when PG&E worked day or night, rain or shine to restore service. Sad to hear on the radio news that they were waiting for daylight to reset a pole, new policy? California is trying to outlaw small engines so you better get you standby generator while they are still legal. Oh and don’t forget the transfer switch and do it right by hiring an electrician.
