Tiburon Peninsula businesses grapple with impacts of power shutoffs

The Pacific Gas and Electric Co. public-safety power shutoff at the end of October threw a wrench in daily operations at businesses across the greater Tiburon Peninsula, including Servino Ristorante. When the electric company cut power to Tiburon, Belvedere and Strawberry Oct. 26 — part of a deliberate shutoff affecting 37 California counties amid high fire danger — Servino’s had to close.
