Nearly 18 months into the sweeping restructuring of California's high-cost electricity industry, the grand experiment has both sizzled and fizzled. For Tamco Steel, a Rancho Cucamonga steel mill that is one of the state's largest industrial electricity users, the market overhaul has meant a welcome 5% drop in the electric bills. "Every little bit helps," said Brad Wilkins, Tamco vice president and chief financial officer.

Some power companies are pulling the plug on old-fashioned mechanical electric meters, and to the likely disappointment of growl-happy dogs, fewer meter-readers will be invading yards across Southern California. Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas and Electric and San Diego Gas and Electric are upgrading customers to digital "smart meters" that can transmit real-time data about electricity use back to the utility company wirelessly. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is updating meters too, but primarily for larger businesses.

A power failure left 3,351 residents without electricity Tuesday morning, and about 300 of them still had no power 14 hours later. The blackout occurred when an underground cable broke at 9:43 a.m., a spokesman for San Diego Gas and Electric said. Power was restored to homes throughout the day, but by 10:30 p.m., about 10% of the homes initially affected still had no electricity.

The City Council has directed city staff to prepare a "state of emergency" declaration on the recent electric rate hikes by San Diego Gas and Electric Co. for the Sept. 26 council meeting. The declaration, normally used for natural disasters such as fires and earthquakes, is primarily a political statement to inform state agencies of the city's dire situation, said Ken MacLeod, finance and administration department director at last week's council meeting.
