IRVINE, Calif. (KTLA) — A mobile home community in Irvine is waking up thankfully warm on Monday morning.

A fight with Southern California Edison threatened to leave the Groves Mobile Home Park without power on one of the coldest nights of the year.

The utility company had planned to shut off the power to the roughly 300 mobile homes Sunday night for infrastructure upgrades.

With temperatures forecast near freezing, the residents — many of whom are elderly — complained.

Southern California Edison has nixed a plan to cut power to roughly 300 mobile homes from Sunday night at 10:00 to 6:00 Monday morning.

Edison was going to go through with the outages, until they relented on Sunday afternoon and agreed to a delay.

“I just thought it was very strange timing,” said Bruce George.

“I didn’t quite really understand why they picked now… Do a power outage in August,” he added.

The planned outages have been postponed indefinitely by SoCal Edison to address public safety concerns.
