March 20, 2020 – As of 8 a.m. today (Friday, March 20), less than 8,000 PG&E customers remain without power due to the storm. These customers are primarily in Nevada, Placer, El Dorado, Sierra and Calaveras counties. We know that some customers have been without power for some time. We understand the hardship of this situation and want those customers to know our crews are working safely and as quickly as possible to restore their power.

More than 145 PG&E crews are working to restore power in these regions, along with 20 snow cats and helicopters patrolling lines for any additional damage. Crews continue to work as conditions allow and areas become accessible. Low-elevation and often heavy snow results in many trees falling into PG&E’s electric equipment, causing significant damage and resulting in outages. Repairs and assessments continue, and restoration is expected for most customers by Sunday. These extended outages are due to the significant damage to equipment in some areas. We are working to communicate with those customers regarding any updates to restoration.
