City Council Approves SDG&E Power Shut-Off Plan

Posted: Updated:
The San Diego City Council has approved a controversial wildfire prevention plan.

The plan would shut off power to rural parts of the county during high winds.

San Diego Gas & Electric developed the proposal after investigators concluded snapped power lines sparked the 2007 wildfires.

The County Board of Supervisors opposed the plan.

But SDG&E said it will begin the shut-offs starting September 1.
