PG&E spends $1M to keep lights on at 'Stick'
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- PG&E and the city of San Francisco have spent nearly $1 million to make sure the power stays on at Candlestick Park during Sunday's NFC championship game against the New York Giants.
More than a mile of wire has been replaced, computer software has been upgraded, and a faulty switch inside the stadium has been fixed in the past month.
You may remember that two outages halted a Monday Night Football game at the 'Stick last month. Mayor Ed Lee called the incident a national embarrassment.
