PG&E Restores More Than Half of Customers Following Public Safety Power Shutoff

San Francisco, CA... Weather Conditions in Nearly All Counties Now Safe to Conduct Inspections, Repairs and Begin Power Restoration; Majority of Customer Resource Centers Will Remain Open on Friday; Windy Weather Should Subside in Kern County by Early Friday. Pacific Gas and Electric Company reported late Thursday that more than half of customers impacted by the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) have had their power restored. About 426,000 out of a total 738,000 customers have been restored, including full restoration in Humboldt, Siskiyou and Trinity counties. About 312,000 customers remain without power.













PG&E initiated a PSPS on Wednesday due to hot, windy weather across its service area. Wind gusts in excess of 70 miles per hour were recorded Wednesday evening and into Thursday.

As the weather has improved, an "all-clear" signal was given on Thursday afternoon indicating the weather had subsided to the point where safety inspections, repair and restoration efforts were able to begin in many areas.

Safety patrols and inspections, which can only take place during daylight hours, concluded at nightfall for today. Patrols will begin again at daybreak on Friday with more than 6,300 on-the-ground field personnel and 44 staged helicopters. Customers will be restored once safety patrols, inspections and necessary repairs are complete.

As of 10 p.m. Thursday, PG&E had identified 11 instances of weather-related damage to its system in the PSPS-impacted areas, and the company is working to address these repairs.

Areas where all-clear has not yet been declared include portions of Butte, Plumas and Yuba counties as well as Kern County, where a third phase of PSPS was implemented late Thursday morning impacting approximately 4,000 customers. The weather conditions in Kern County are expected to continue into early Friday.

Customer update

During the period of the PSPS, customers in impacted areas will not be billed, and PG&E has paused disconnection and collection activities in these areas.

Twenty-seven PG&E Community Resource Centers remain open throughout the service area to provide water, phone charging stations, air-conditioned seating and restrooms for customers. Over 3,300 customers utilized the centers on Thursday. View the full list.

Customers can visit pge.com/pspsupdates for more information.

    You are sitting here bitching and moaning without even looking at PG&E's side. No one wants to take responsibility for any of this mess. The insurance companies don't accept any responsibility...they're cancelling a lot of people, the forest service is irresponsible...just take a drive through Big Trees State Park, our great (hahaha) governor doesn't accept responsibility, the county can't even take care of the drainage problems so they aren't taking responsibility and worst of all...we as homeowners won't accept any responsibility!!! Take a look at the lines running to your house from the main line. How many of them are running through YOUR trees on YOUR property? Those are YOUR responsibility!!! I am in that same category BUT I am making arrangements to have those trimmed and you should also!!! So in my mind, I'm super thankful that PG&E decided to be the ADULT in this situation and take over responsibility. THANK YOU to the many employees who have put countless hours in trying to keep "bitchers and moaners" like you happy..which is an impossible job!!!! THANKS PG&E FOR TAKING RESPONSIBILITY WHERE NO ONE ELSE WILL !!!

      That's the thing though, PG&E hasn't taken responsibility. They paid 4.5 BILLION dollars to their shareholders, rather than trimming trees. They put in the cheapest line, rather than the covered conductor that they now have to install.
      This is a mess of their own making, and now we all have to pay for it.
      I agree that improvements can be make by many different agencies, but I refuse to let PG&E off the hook for not being able to deliver reliable power during a 20 mph breeze.

Over 2 dozen electric lines were damaged so far and little minds like yours don't understand why parts of the grid get shutdown. Then if there was a devastating fire you'd be saying the exact same thing.
What a doofus you are. I bet you'd be standing taller if someone called you einstein too.

    I wonder where the damaged lines were located.

              Have you considered seeking employment with PG & E? You seem to have a lot of criticism and advice for them, perhaps you could point them in the right direction. You would need to clean up your language a bit on your resume, however. You are pretty crude.

    True, their aging infrastructure was so bad it fell apart under a breeze. And properly trimmed trees don't fall on lines.

Wowee! PGE has got to get much faster at turning the power back on after a black out. Great idea in principle but not in reality - yet.
