@Johncdvorak and @adam talking about private companies running power, gas, and water. Then there’s the Midwest where most of our utilities are run as municipalities or co-ops. Only time we have outages (which are almost nonexistent) is when our main transmission lines are taken down by tornados or ice accumulation.
California is weird.
