Power hungry? – Brief Article
California businesses trying to avoid the state’s rotating power outages were required to apply to the California Public Utilities Commission in June to demonstrate that power outages at their facilities would “pose a significant threat to public health or safety.” Outages typically last between 90 and 120 minutes. There were 9,239 businesses that applied for exemption, including 7 Lakes Country Club, All Eyez On Me Hair Studio, Anytime Towing, Cash It Here, Inc., City of Beverly Hills, Enanto Drive In Liquor, Expert Nails, Gardana Bowling Center, Gucci America Incorporated, Sharpshooter Range, Sick Dogs Tattoo, Snowy Pines Christmas Trees, and T-Shirt Mart.
