The California Public Utilities Commission will be holding a public hearing to determine whether or not Southern California Edison did everything in its, er, power to prevent and restore power outages caused by last year's crazy windstorm.

Some residents went for an entire week without power and it's likely that "sorry" didn't cut it (especially for this guy who got arrested for making death threats). The company's slow, sluggish response and poor customer service could put it on the hook for fines and penalties from the state, according to La Canada Flintridge Patch.

The meeting will be held at 4 p.m. on Jan. 26 at Temple City High School or you can submit comments to the commission separately, Patch reports.
