  1. SDG&E Sucks

    SDG&E is garbage, I live in the middle of town and lately every time the wind blows our power goes out. They need to address the deficiency in their system. Wish I owned a house, I would go solar!

    They need to be better about notifying customers when they do these "planned outages". Multiple calls to SDG&E, with promises of it being restored, but not a word about it being due to the Red Flag!

  3. yeah right

    That's weird right? Imagine the most reliable utility in the entire nation with a deficient system. Go figure.
