Overview of Public Safety Power Shutoffs

What is a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS)?

PG&E is implementing additional precautionary measures to help reduce the risk of wildfires and may need to turn off power during extreme weather or fire conditions. A shutoff can occur depending on local fire danger conditions, such as a Red Flag Warning, high wind gusts, low humidity, and dry vegetation. In most cases, PG&E expects to be able to restore power within 24 to 48 hours after extreme weather has passed. However, depending on weather conditions or if any repairs are needed, outages could last multiple days – so it’s important you and your family have an emergency plan in place.

How do I know if my residence will be affected?

  • Register for Alert Solanoto get alerts on power shutoffs and other emergency notifications.
  • If you have medical devices, sign up for the PG&E Medical Baseline Program.
  • Make sure your contact information with PG&E is updated.
  • View the PG&E Service Impact Map and type in your address on the search box to find out if your service will be impacted.
