RE: Second day of rolling blackouts starts

Any idea which was the last block?


started today with block 5 (who got only a short outage yesterday)
- as well as 6 & 7 per

"About 400,000 PG&E customers in widely scattered areas known as blocks 5,
6 and 7 were affected first, around 9:50 a.m., a PG&E spokesman said.
There was a possibility the outages could shift to blocks 8, 9 and 10
later in the morning.'

Block 4 -- according to PG&E, block 5 starts the list today, and although
I haven't paid attention to the clock yet, they may be on block 6 now. or for more info.


My take on this is the following. Despite exploding population in CA,
power plants haven't been brought into production in like a decade. A
couple new ones are supposed to open this summer. Also, this is not
really true deregulation, if it were CA power companies would be able to
enter into longer term contracts with any supplier they wished..

According to the PG&E website, blocks 5, 6, 7, & 8 are likely to suffer
rolling outages today (1/18).
