(AP) — Nearly 150,000 customers remained without power Wednesday in and around Portland, Oregon, nearly a week after a massive snow and ice storm swept into the Pacific Northwest, taking out hundreds of miles of power lines as ice-laden trees toppled across the region.

At the peak of the storm, more than 350,000 customers in the greater Portland were without power, and 5,000 power lines and three substations were down. “These are the most dangerous conditions we’ve ever seen in the history of PGE,” said Dale Goodman, director of utility operations, who declined to predict when all customers would have...

    The Robinhood investment app is see on a smartphone in this photo illustration on June 24, 2020 in Washington,DC.Jim Watson | AFP | Getty Images Amid a frenzy of speculative retail trading activity in the market, Robinhood's CEO is stressing that the majority of the stock trading app's clients are long-term investors. "Most of our customers are, you know, what's called buy and hold," CEO of Robinhood Vlad Tenev told Andrew Ross Sorkin on CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Wednesday.

    PLEASANTON — Pleasanton residents will have an alternative energy option this April, more than a year after the city agreed to join a community choice nonprofit committed to providing clean energy. The City Council on Tuesday approved the default plans customers will receive starting in April from East Bay Community Energy (EBCE), the energy service provider for its residents, which will offer customers the option of 100% carbon-free electricity. The council in 2019 agreed to join EBCE, a not-for-profit public agency that provides electricity from clean and renewable sources in Alameda and San Joaquin counties, according to the city. PG&E will still deliver the power, maintain the grid and manage billing. Pleasanton customers will be given a choice of whether they want to opt-out of EBCE’s energy plan. They can also decide if they want a different level of service other than the default choice, or continue to purchase power directly...

    HALLOWELL, Maine (AP) — Central Maine Power and Versant Power customers who elect to use the standard offer for electricity will pay lower rates in the coming year. The Maine Public Utility Commission on Wednesday approved a standard offer for CMP residential customers that reduces the cost of electricity by 12% and overall bills by about 5% after taking into account transmission costs. The cost reduction for a typical CMP customer amounts to a monthly savings of $4.70, or $56.38 annually, regulators said. The standard offer approved for Versant customers on Tuesday amounts to a 10% reduction for the electricity, which equates to 3.6% reduction in the total bill after taking into account transmission costs. The rate reductions are good news for residents “finding it hard to make ends meet” and businesses that are “struggling to keep their doors open," PUC Chairman Philip L. Bartlett II said. The rates reflect...
    Ending in tiers WE hope Boris Johnson listens to the pubs, salons and shops.

They became Covid-secure. They had to shed precious staff to stay afloat. Then came the “tier” restrictions and Lockdown 2. If the law now forces them to pull down the shutters during the festive season they will stay down forever. Tough new tiers will be catastrophic for jobs, businesses and communities.

    Pacific Gas and Electric will cut power to nearly 1 million people in Northern and Central California on Sunday amid conditions forecasters are describing as the most dangerous fire weather of the season.

Winds had already started to pick up in some northern areas Sunday afternoon. They were expected to become most widespread and intense Sunday evening and overnight into Monday, though critical conditions...

    CHICAGO (AP) — United Airlines says it listened to customers and is dropping an unpopular $200 fee for most people who change a ticket for travel within the United States. “When we hear from customers about where we can improve, getting rid of fees is often the top request,” United CEO Scott Kirby said in a video posted Sunday. United’s move will put pressure on American Airlines and Delta Air Lines to drop their change fees, also $200 on domestic travel. Delta and American said they are waiving change fees for travel affected by the virus through the year’s end. Southwest Airlines does not charge change fees, a policy which its CEO says has helped it gain more business. Chicago-based United said that it eliminated change fees for people who buy a standard or premium economy ticket for U.S. travel. United also said that it will extend a broad waiver...

T-Mobile, which closed its $30 billion merger with the wireless carrier in April, officially retired the Sprint brand Monday."I want to acknowledge the Sprint history and its 120-year legacy that is now part of our legacy as we launch into this new era," said T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert in a statement, adding, "We did it!

But wait -- there's a catch!Customers in the United States and Canada will be able to pay Starbucks for the amount of their order directly from whatever payment method...
