Just recently PG&E created a website to help educate the public on what to do for natural disasters and the possibility of a “public safety power shutoff event” in the Berkeley area. Berkeley councilwoman Susan Wengraf is not satisfied with PG&E’s explanations of the intricacies of shutting off the power. She said, “I don’t think they’ve really explained to anybody how it’s going to work — and maybe they don’t know how it’s going to work. The impacts of their turning off power are so enormous.” Wengraf also noted that power could be shut off in Berkeley even if there’s issues in other parts of the state. “That is a possibility, but we don’t know. It all depends on the fire conditions,” said Darin Cline, manager of Public Affairs & Governmental Relations for PG&E in the Bay Area. Due to the deadly fires from last year the state has given PG&E and other utilities the power to shut off electricity in certain areas of the state at will.
