Poll: Are You Confident SDG&E Can Avoid Another Major Blackout?

Federal report urges fixes, and utility president agrees—but deflects blame for the outage.

A federal report on the September 2011 blackout found “grid operators’ lack of adequate real-time situational awareness of conditions throughout the Western Interconnection.” Two agencies called for “more effective review and use of information.” SDG&E President Mike Niggli on Tuesday said his utility would expedite the recommended fixes in planning and coordination with other utilities but deflected blame—saying his company’s system “operated the way it was designed and should have.”  Are you confident a massive outage won’t happen again?

San Onofre (2350 Megawatts) equals four Calico Solars (564 Megawatts) 4 Calico Solars @ 4600 acres each equals 19166 acres or 30 square miles spoiled due to day to day operations

It's well worth using fossil fuel and hydroelectric instead of nuclear fission.

It's June 24th 2012. And here in La Mesa we've had a blackout 3 weeks ago and we just came out of one last night

Local blackouts are not due to the SORE (San Onofre Reactor Emergency), but problems with the grid (wiring, transformers etc)....
