The energy company Edison, which supplies electricity in California, because of fears that power grids could cause a fire to spread, cut off the north of the state and part of San Francisco on Wednesday, and on Thursday - 20 thousand homes in Los Angeles and the districts of San Bernandino and Kerg.
Power outages can occur in 36 state counties, said Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), California’s largest electricity supplier.
State Governor Gavin Newsom demanded a $ 100 discount to all private customers affected by the outage.
On Friday, PG&E warned about 850,000 customers that they could lose their electricity from Saturday evening to Monday noon. The shutdown will affect about 2 million people.
As early as Thursday, PG&E cut off electricity in 15 state districts to prevent accidents. About 180 thousand houses were left without light, but electricity was returned on the same day.
“This has become the norm,” Bowes wrote on Twitter. “The electricity was cut off a second time in a month. Neither water nor light. Strong winds and fires are expected.”
In turn, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Inc. and SpaceX, today on October 28, 2019, tweeted that if someone is directly affected by a wildfire power outage, Tesla will lower the price of Solar+Powerwall by $ 1,000 as of today.
Since Tesla does not use advertising, it can be difficult to find up-to-date information on how to order Solar+Powerwall on the Internet. Below I will leave links to sites where you can order the vital Solar+Powerwall.
