PG&E decided to restore power after hearing from customers and public officials. California Sen. Joe Simitian spoke with PG&E executives and urged them to “take a step back and take a deep breath,” he said.

“I don’t have a problem with SmartMeters per se - I just thought this was over the top,” said Simitian, D-Palo Alto. “It’s inappropriate for a bill-paying customer to have their power cut off while there’s an ongoing process at the CPUC. It’s not like they can walk down the street and purchase power from another utility.”
