No Utility Bills to be Sent to Wildfire Victims

Wildfire victims won’t have to pay their utility bills if their house burned down. The California Public Utilities Commission has approved emergency consumer protections against power and utility providers sending bills to customers who aren’t getting service anymore and refund them for service outages during the fires.  The order only applies to nine counties, including Lake and Mendocino. A spokesperson for PG&E says they are also waiving fees for temporarily disconnecting and reconnecting service.
