PSPS Update: PG&E cancels planned shutoffs for 29,000 customers across California today

PG&E has cancelled Public Security Energy Shutoffs scheduled for today in California as an offshore wind occasion is trending weaker.

PG&E had notified about 29,000 customers across 19 counties in Northern and Central California that they might have had their energy shut off. About 7,100 customers within the Bay Space would have been impacted.

Nevertheless, there stays an opportunity for gusty south winds to develop alongside the Tehachapi foothills tonight via Saturday afternoon and the PG&E Emergency Operations Middle stays activated for a possible PSPS occasion.

A PSPS Warning remains to be in impact for Kern County tomorrow and Saturday.

On Monday, PG&E shut off energy to about 24,000 customers in elements of 23 counties. Energy for that PSPS occasion was restored Tuesday evening

Officers say the shutoffs are in an effort to scale back the chance of wildfires sparking from the utility’s energy strains amid dry and windy circumstances.
