I don’t think anyone is saying it’s cheap and easy. I think people are saying we have paid, and currently pay, enough already to have competent people maintaining their power lines so we don’t lose property and lives in fires. As a result of the companies not doing this, we get to go without power because the utilities would rather bandaid a situation to limit liability than fix it. Maybe rates do need to increase... Have utilities been running at a loss? I don’t follow this close enough to know.
