California Businesses Face Another Round of Blackouts
"A fire in Sonoma's county sparked on Wednesday has grown quickly fueled by strong winds and dry conditions forcing the evacuation of hundreds of residents in northern California the fire is now burning over ten thousand acres and threatens to endanger area ranches and wineries the heightened risk of fire has also forced California Utility PG and e. to begin another round of blackouts the utility says it will cut power to one hundred seventy nine Zain customers that's far fewer than the seven hundred fifty thousand whose power was cut in the last wave of blackouts earlier this month but residents and businesses are struggling our Jim Carlton checked in with some of them and joins me now from San Francisco so jim when we think of businesses that might be most impacted by these blackouts. I think obviously people in the food business come to mind restaurants that have to make sure they have fresh food and then grocery stores who have to ensure that it's stored properly but you spoke to us their businesses ranging all over the map including art galleries tell us what you heard from small businesses amid these blackouts you come across the board they're talking about pretty a surprising amount of losses I talked to a custom framing gallery in California and that's kind of a cute tourist town on on the way to Lake Tahoe surrounded by beautiful trees pine trees and in the summer the shops are filled with tourists and whatnot and also in the winter when skiers went up and I talked to Daniel Anderson who owns pop art custom gallery in he said that they lost during the shutdown two thousand dollars a day and lost business and not only that but also lost you know the some of these people won't give referrals so it's kind of lost potential businesses well and so in all he lost about eight thousand dollars so as a pretty significant blow to him and what are you hearing from restaurants and people in the food business about efforts to preserve their product accent what they're struggling with y'all so there's another grocery of cold mill creek grocery and they had problems last a lot of groceries. I think the California Grocers Association estimated that the losses of something like three hundred dollars to one thousand dollars per day on the small markets you know lost produce and whatnot there's actually a company that the new leaf community markets in Santa Cruz County they have portable refrigerated trucks and they would go around and try to do you know save as much merchandise as they could but I mean so really I mean the groceries though have a very hard time because they have so many items comes in so many perishables and the bigger chains railly's is a big chain out of West Sacramento they have generators you'll safeway they have writers about these small mom and pops they may have a generator but might not be big enough to really absorb the impact Jim overall our business owner's feeling amid what might become a new normal for them. PGE has said it plans to continue doing these blackouts win high winds become a risk they are super angry I mean I mean I've heard this from the residents but I mean the the businesses are just like you know I mean the first shutdown was hard enough on them and you know and get that they don't want I mean I mean of course it's preferable to a wildfire destroying their community but you know like you know Daniel interests telling me I mean this this is not our fault this PG. appea- Jenny didn't make the necessary investments in the pinion of him and many other people in the state to prevent US equipment from igniting wildfires and so now these businesses are having to pay and this is the worst part is that they really can't get reimbursed is kind of a gray area the you know there's insurance they don't think it's going to cover all the losses governor Gavin Newsom did propose PG handout checks of two hundred fifty dollars per business to compensate them for the losses from the last outage and Miss Anderson call that a slap in the face it's just a drop in the bucket in almost an insult so they're not happy and how is pg responding to those concerns each time that CEO Bill Johnston addresses the press he's been doing nightly press briefings at their headquarters in downtown San Francisco he's always quick with an apology he also points out he's only been on the job six months but he's looking forward not backwards but they acknowledge that you know things could have been better the pass they're looking towards the future and you know he says these planned power shutdowns are necessary to prevent another catastrophe like you know wiped out the town of Paradise last year so they're kind of between a rock and a Hard Place Wall Street Journal reporter Jim Carlton Joining us from San Francisco thank you so much Jimmy thanks
