CURRENTS WEEK IN REVIEW: AUG. 31-Sep. 4, 2015
PG&E CREWS BRINGING ELECTRIC POWER TO SCOTIA, AMERICA'S 'LAST COMPANY TOWN'
Things are a changing in Scotia, a town of 800 people nestled along the redwood forests of Humboldt County. Often called the "Last Company Town" in America, because it was once completely owned by Pacific Lumber Company, Scotia will soon be powered by PG&E. Blue trucks have been visible throughout the community as work is under way to build an electric grid around, over and under 262 homes and other buildings. As this video shows, it's a pretty big undertaking in this sleepy town.
