Coastsider Justin Stockman says he was motivated by recent PG&E power shut-offs to protect his family with an alternative solar power source. The storage battery is in his garage.

It’s been a mostly dry winter, and the next wildfire season is not far away. With that comes the possibility of more planned power shut-offs from PG&E. 

Last year two PG&E Public Safety Shut-Off events included the Coastside. They saddled businesses, schools and residents with the fallout that comes from losing power for an extended period of time.
