PG&E Set To Shut Off Power In Northern California Once Again

PG&E Set To Shut Off Power In Northern California Once Again

PG&E will shut off the power of 150,000 customers and 16 counties in Northern California on Wednesday. This mass shut off makes one of a few by PG&E in this year alone.

The shut off is set to start at 7:00 AM and continue throughout the day until 4:00 PM.

Officials made a forecast strong winds and dry conditions for Wednesday morning, which prompted the shut off. PG&E hopes to restore power to customers by the end of the day Thursday.

The shut off is a part of PG&E’s Public Safety Power Shutoff program, designed to prevent lines from sparking in windy conditions. PG&E’s equipment has been named the cause of recent destructive wildfires, so although the shut offs have generated outrage from residents, businesses, and local governments, it is the preventative measure put in place by PG&E for the time being.

Customers in the impacted counties can find updates and a list of resource centers here.
