Power Restored to All Impacted Customers after PG&E Proactively Shut off Power in Butte and Yuba Counties.

San Francisco, CA...Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) proactively shut off the power for safety in Butte and Yuba counties last evening. Due to more favorable weather changes in other parts of the region, PG&E will continue to evaluate weather conditions for a Public Safety Power Shutoff in Nevada, El Dorado and Placer counties. PG&E meteorologists will continue to monitor the weather overnight and PG&E will de-energize customers in some parts of these counties if necessary.

`



For areas impacted by the Public Safety Power Shutoff, the company will open two Community Resource Centers on Sunday, June 9 at 8:00 a.m. to support customers across counties impacted by the proactive power shutoff in the Sierra Foothills. The centers will provide restrooms, bottled water, electronic device charging and air-conditioned seating for up to 100 customers each. The centers are located at:

Grass Valley Community Resource Center: Sierra College
250 Sierra College Drive
Grass Valley, CA 95945

Oroville Community Resource Center: Harrison Stadium
1674 3rd Avenue
Oroville, CA 95965

The Public Safety Power Shutoff event in portions of the Sierra Foothills began Saturday, June 8 at approximately 9:00 p.m. and impacts about 16,000 customers in portions of Butte and Yuba Counties. Forecasts for the extreme weather conditions are expected to last through late morning on Sunday, June 9. PG&E will continue to monitor the weather conditions in Nevada, El Dorado and Placer counties, and may still de-energize lines there overnight if necessary.

"Our most important responsibly is the safety of our customers and communities. We are providing those impacted by the shutoff event with these support resources located in key locations. We ask that people look out for their neighbors, elderly and anyone with special needs who might need to use these community resource centers," said Michael Lewis, senior vice president of Electric Operations, PG&E.

Customers can access a live outage map at pge.com/outages and learn more about the latest updates on Public Safety Power Shutoff at pge.com/pspsupdates. PG&E is working directly with CAL FIRE, Cal OES, and other state and local agencies for this safety event.


All Customers Restored After North Bay Event
Power restoration is complete for all customers located in areas of Napa, Solano and Yolo Counties impacted by the Public Safety Power Shutoff in the North Bay. PG&E had proactively turned off power for safety to approximately 1,600 customers at 6:15 a.m. on Saturday. PG&E crews completed safety patrols, inspections and repairs of electric infrastructure in the impacted areas and restored power this evening.

Re: defensible space and equipment safety

I'm a firm believer in every property owner maintaining their own defensible space-cutting down the excess shrubbery and trees and cutting down ALL weeds, etc. Also with machines folks have to make sure they have spark arrestors (sp?) so don't be tightwads and buy them. Just spending a few dollars more on something is a lot better than a loss of thousands and even loss of lives. The life and property you save may be your own and others. Also little things like broken glass hiding in the grass or weeds are a hazard along with any combustible cans, i.e., aerosol type, carbuerator starters etc. It takes a community effort. Additionally, PG&E are already having helicopter patrols checking for heavy foliage around the high power lines and well as lower ones. So with all this community effort and being watchful, we may not have any more tragedies like the Camp/Paradise fire, etc. Thank you

It's going to be a long summer, worse with power outages. If possible pick up a generator so you can run a fan, fridge and a couple lights. I have this one:

https://powerequipment.honda.com/generators/models/eu2200i

It's great. Not too heavy and very quiet. Our closest dealers are:

Guy's Saw Center
19965 State Highway 88
Pine Grove, CA 95665
(209) 296-7848
Sales and Service

Mike's Mowers
20738 Longeway Rd
Sonora, CA 95370-8908
(209) 533-3056
Sales and Service

Don't forget to get a few smoke masks. The smoke is horrible for our health. Masks can be in short supply during fires.

    Bought a Honda, a few months later I have a recall on it. I called mikes mowers about it (I like the guy and his shop) he told me he has no idea on how long it would take to fix it, what parts he'll need. Honda has not shipped him parts, told him the problem or how long it will take for the fix. So now I have a $1000 dollar generator that might have a gas leak that I can't get fixed until who knows when?

      Yes, I heard about that problem. It is fixed with the new ones now. You need to directly complain to the company, demand an immediate fix or an exchange. https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2019/american-honda-recalls-portable-generators-due-to-fire-and-burn-hazards

      It is still one of the best small generators for home use. But recalls of everything is unacceptable and should not be so common. Sorry to hear about your misfortune, hope you get a fix soon.

I have immense hatred for PG&E

Time to make the move to solar so I can be more in control of my home. PG&E needs to go, what a horrible, greedy and despicable business. Stockholders held above rate paying customers.
