Power Restored to Chatsworth and Porter Ranch

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power says outage affected about 4,000 customers.

By City News Service

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power crews on Monday restored power to all customers in the Chatsworth and Porter Ranch areas who lost power on Sunday night due to downed lines, authorities said.

At its peak, the outage -- which began about 6:50 p.m. Sunday -- affected about 4,000 customers, said the LADWP's Kim Hughes.

Service was restored to all but about 650 customers by late Sunday night, and service was fully restored about 3:30 this morning, the LADWP reported.

The cause of the outage was under investigation.

Let's open up some coal plants

Yes Coal Plants ! And bring back incinerators here too ! I hate garbage cans. An even better way is to move out a few million. A good 9.0 should do the trick, separating the groupies from those able to Rock and Roll. Then the power consumption will be less. In the meantime Kim, I suggest also that you include some oh so good for you coal in your diet. It has so much fiber it's not grown, it's mined !

Are power lines less likely to be susceptible to wind when the electricity is generated through coal?

Wind? The article said the cause was underinvestigation.

Who's to blame for billions blown on green energy debacle? Financial ties between Obama administration, loan receipts http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/the-kelly-file/index.html#/v/3020619816001

The article incorrectly states that all power was restored by 3:30am, Jan 6, when in fact it wasn't until almost 12 hours later that all customers got their power back. In a few years, when it is cheaper and more efficient, I plan to have solar panels and good power storage. Then I won't have to be out of power if some texting yahoo rams a utility pole or if zombies sieze the power stations.

Japan is switching back to coal as Nukes didn't work out so well. Wind and solar are very costly as worse make energy consume a huge percentage of the working classes budget , while the rich feel nothing.

Tank, do you think Nukes are cheaper? (no insurance co. will touch 'em. So, the gov't covers that side of it.) Fukashima serves as an example of how expensive it can be. Even the steel in Japan is now suspect of holding a 'charge'.
