California Utility To Enforce Mandatory Blackouts For Millions

The ongoing California power crisis is hitting yet another level as more blackouts are said to be on the way for millions of residents. In this case, Pacific Gas & Electric and Southern California Edison, two prominent California power companies, announced more incoming mandatory blackouts are on the way. Only this time, the blackouts are likely to go on for a longer period of time.

“We are preparing with our communities and state agencies for a large-scale shutoff that has the potential to be on the same order as the one on Oct. 9 — but of a longer duration,” Utility CEO Bill Johnson said.

As it stands, 850k people have been warned of the incoming mandatory blackouts. But that number is expected to rise significantly over the days. Those who are unprepared with prepper supplies should prep now. It appears that the future of California, at least for the next decade, will operate in mandatory blackout mode. Eventually, the power companies will be 100 percent controlled by the state, and we know what that means.

Without preparation, regular citizens become slaves in short order.
