San Francisco-based power company PG&E Corp said on Friday it has started rotating power outages at the instructions of Californias grid operator, affecting about 200,000 to 250,000 consumers at a time, given the pressure on the power grid during the statewide heatwave. The company stated in a declaration it is not calling a public safety power shut-off, which is conducted throughout particular high fire hazard conditions. Last year, PG&Es power shut-offs struck hundreds of thousands of homes and offices in northern California and were condemned by consumers as well as authorities for being too extensive, with inadequate interaction.
