Destructive Events

Edison has a pattern of damaging property, destroying neighborhoods, killing residents, and being unresponsive to customers. Edison is a for profit, investor owned public utility monopoly. Edison recorded a net profit of almost $1 BILLON in 2022.

Event 1

June 2018, Camarillo, CA - An Edison neutral power cable ("ground") from the utility pole to Camarillo resident's home failed, resulting in the home being back-fed with 240 volts. The “dropped neutral” condition damaged or destroyed over $40,000 of electronics and personal property. Edison admitted fault, replaced the severely corroded steel ground cable, and advised the homeowner to submit a claim. The homeowner spent over $37,000 in repairs and repeatedly submitted claims, estimates, and receipts. Now three years later, Edison has failed to take any responsibly or reimburse the homeowner for the damage.

Shockingly, in May 2020, the residence across the street from the homeowner suffered the same failure, incurred damaged property and a lack of response from Edison.

Event 2

May 2020 - 80 year old couple sells their home and moves out-of-state after Edison equipment failure damages appliances and HVAC systems. Edison again refused to to honor the "dropped neutral" claim.

Event 3

Southern California Edison violated state safety regulations that govern the design, construction and maintenance of overhead electrical lines and communication facilities, which led to the ignition of the blazes. The agreement also prevents Southern California Edison from tapping ratepayers to cover $375 million in cost recoveries stemming from insurance claims relating to the fires. Read More
