Pro-active power management during high wildfire risk draws complaints from consumers

Arching or downed power lines start wildfires each year.  This year, possibly for the first time ever, a California power company chose to shut down power transmission lines that were subjected to periods of high winds. This kind of active management of ignition sources is rare and not without consequences. Many consumers have filed complaints against California’s Power, Gas and Electric (PG&E), however, there were no new wildfires from these lines, so maybe it’s worth the cost?
