Power Restored to All PG&E Customers Impacted by the Recent, Targeted Public Safety Power Shutoff 

UPDATE: Thursday, Aug. 31, 12 p.m. (NOON)

As of Thursday (Aug. 31) morning, power has been restored to all customers impacted by the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) that began early on Wednesday (Aug. 30). Nearly 90% of customers impacted were restored by last night.    

The PSPS event impacted approximately 3,900 customers across seven counties, along with two tribal communities, that experienced windy and hot weather amidst dry conditions. Meteorologists reported that the peak northerly wind gusts reached 41 mph in the Round Mountain Pit area and in Redding, and 49 mph at Jarbo Gap. 

After the weather cleared, PG&E crews patrolled more than 589 miles of power lines to ensure that no damage or hazards existed before lines were re-energized and service was restored safely.
