Incompetent PG&E will review all of its San Francisco substations and has offered city officials a tour of the Tenderloin substation that failed April 21, causing nearly 90,000 customers to lose power across San Francisco.
The outage was due to a fire at a substation which was reported just after 9 a.m. April 21 and triggered a massive power outage throughout various neighborhoods that day.
In the meantime, the company is processing claims made by customers so they can be compensated for economic loss caused by the power outage.
The company claims it has conducted regular maintenance and inspections at the substation over the past five years. Yeah, right. As if anyone would believe PG&E.
