Assuming there was negligence attributed to one of the several utility companies potentially responsible for the blackout of September 8, 2011, across Arizona, Southern California and Mexico, anyone, including businesses, could seek compensation for their provable economic losses. These include, but are not limited to, spoiled food, loss of profits for closing a business early, ruined electronics from power surges. Most people won’t be fully covered by homeowner’s or business insurance so a claim against the responsible utility company (Arizona Public Service, San Diego Gas Electric Co, etc.) would be appropriate.
