September 23, 2019 – Weather conditions, including potential fire risk, have been forecast that may impact electric service to portions of our service area. If these conditions persist, we may need to turn off power for safety in nine Northern California counties starting late afternoon and into the evening on Monday, September 23. Power will remain off until weather conditions improve and it is safe to restore service. Please note that outages could last for multiple days.

To see if a specific address is expected to be shut off or to view a map that outlines the potential outage area(s), visit Potential PSPS outage maps.
