“PG&E Is Starting These Fires” -US Judge William Alsup

PGandE Probation Violation

A U.S. Judge on Wednesday berated PG&E for violating its probation in the 2010 San Bruno gas explosion. By not reporting to probation officers that they were under investigation for lighting multiple deadly wildfires PG&E violated the terms of their probation: that they not re-offend. The judge is overseeing the gas explosion case and had ordered PG&E to make their power lines safe by trimming overhead trees and shutting off power when fire was a risk.

“To my mind, there’s a very clear-cut pattern here that PG&E is starting these fires,” Alsup said. “More money could have been spent. It’s not enough to just come in here and say, ‘judge we’re trying to mitigate it.’ That’s platitudes.”
