The batteries they are offering medically compromised people (who qualify under strict guidelines) will maybe charge a cell phone or power one light for an hour. This does nothing to help the at-risk community who are on full-time oxygen or have other critical medical needs. Under the same guidelines, they offer help to pay for part of a generator to those who live in specific zones - most of Danville/San Ramon/Alamo are not in these zones. PG&E needs to plan and build for the future with their community. These shutdowns will impact the health of the community. Although trying, PG&E is not meeting the needs of their medically at-risk community.
