Say what you like about SDG&E (and once you bring Sempra Energy, their parent, into the game, there's a lot--these are the clowns that held their annual meeting in London so Joe-average stockholders wouldn't show up,) they're pretty damned reliable. Four incidents and two hours' downtime is a good summer for ComEd.
