Seems that huge bonuses for executives and stockholder dividends were more important to the power company for the last few decades.

A small woodburning stove for heat would be a possible option here.
The huge bonus and dividends are dwarfed by the 20 billion ca spend on illegals while spend less than 1 billion on forest fire prevention.

Man, I bitch about LADWP being a shady outfit, bordering on criminal enterprise, but at least they have their shit together enough to keep the power on during a wind storm.

Thus far it seems to be Edison and PG&E that cuts power all the time.
