Trouble has actually been brewing for California utility company, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) for many years now. It’s not only about deadly wildfires and planned blackouts either.
- In 2015 hundreds of their “Smart” Meters simultaneously exploded in Stockton, CA after a truck caused a power surge.
- Insurance companies have been suing the utility after their “Smart” Meters caught fire.
- Customers took legal action against them when they became sick after the company installed “Smart” Meters on their homes.
So it’s perfectly understandable that many Californians are fed up with the company – hence a new beer named after their frustration.
Anger over devastating California wildfires sparked by Pacific Gas & Electric power lines is coming to a head — in a beer. And an outcry is brewing.
Steve Doty, owner of Shady Oak brewery in Santa Rosa, announced a new beer called “F— PG&E,” describing it on Facebook last week as “a classic California pale ale, featuring Cashmere and Simcoe hops and a touch of malt sweetness.”
Issues with utility “Smart” Meters – including fires and explosions – aren’t isolated to PG&E. There are also countless reports worldwide of people getting sick after utility “Smart” Meters have been installed.
Tens of millions of “Smart” Meters have been installed by different utility companies so they have likely already been installed on your home and throughout your community. Hundreds of thousands of them have also been recalled or replaced due to failure, malfunctioning, overheating, “planned obsolesce”, and obviously fires and explosions.
All things considered, “F— Smart Meters” might also be a great name for a new beer or bumper sticker or whatever. Bottoms up!
