Given improved weather conditions, PG&E has notified all customers that no Public Safety Power Shutoffs will be necessary. We had previously notified about 5,800 customers in 13 counties and two tribal communities that a safety shutoff might be needed. Groups of customers were notified Sunday and Monday that a PSPS would not be needed. At 11 a.m. Monday, we have notified the final group of customers that there will be no PSPS outages.
We thank our customers in Butte, Colusa, Fresno, Glenn, Kern Lake, Napa, San Benito, Shasta, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Tehama and Yolo counties for their patience.
As a reminder, customers can use our online address lookup tool to find out whether they could be affected by a PSPS, as well as to obtain live updates regarding the status of the event at www.pge.com/pspsupdates
PG&E closely monitors weather conditions, as well as real-time data from our weather stations and from the National Weather Service. We work quickly to keep customers and communities up to date and share information as it becomes available.
At PG&E, we are determined to stop catastrophic wildfires, and a potential Public Safety Power Shutoff is a last-resort tool in helping us reduce wildfire risk in the communities we serve. For details on PG&E’s Community Wildfire Safety Program, click here.
