SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has restored power to essentially all 25,000 customers in small portions of about 20 counties affected by the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) that started Monday evening (Oct. 11).

In addition, PG&E is continuing to monitor another weather system expected to bring dry offshore winds to Northern and Central California. Given this latest wind event, PG&E may need to call a second PSPS this week to reduce wildfire risk.

Earlier today, PG&E sent two-day advance notifications to approximately 29,000 customers in small, targeted portions of 19 counties and four tribes who could be affected by this next PSPS, which could begin early Thursday.

For Monday’s PSPS event, PG&E safely restored power after patrolling all 2,549 miles of lines that were de-energized for safety which is equivalent to the driving distance from San Francisco to Detroit. The patrol and inspection efforts included nearly 1,494 on-the-ground personnel and 43 helicopters.

Wind gusts in PSPS de-energized areas with some of the largest customer impacts were observed as follows: 55 mph in Butte County; 52 mph in Shasta County; and 47 mph in Tehama County.

In areas where PG&E crews found equipment that was damaged by the offshore wind event, crews worked safely and as quickly as possible to make the repairs and restore those customers.

Preliminary data shows at least four instances of weather-related damage and hazards in the PSPS-affected areas, including vegetation on lines. If PG&E had not de-energized powerlines, these types of damages could have caused wildfire ignitions.

To support its customers during the shutoff, PG&E opened 24 Community Resource Centers in affected areas—offering snacks, water, and other essential items. PG&E also partnered with community-based organizations to assist customers with medical and independent living needs.

Details about customer support programs are available at www.pge.com/pspsupdates.
