Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) announced that it would shut off power in 29 counties for public safety reasons between Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon, citing concerns that dry air and 30 mile per hour (mph) winds could spark wildfires in the region, the Los Angeles Timesreported.
Multiple media reports indicate that the North Coast would not be alone in the dark, with hundreds of thousands slated to see power shut off in the Bay Area, as wells as parts of Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Colusa, El Dorado, Glenn, Lake, Mariposa, Mendocino, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, San Joaquin, Shasta, Sierra, Stanislaus, Tehama, Tuolumne, Yolo and Yuba counties. Based on the weather forecast that calls for dry winds with gusts in some areas up to 45 miles per hour coupled with low humidity, hot temperatures and heavy fuel conditions (weed growth and dry vegetation), PG&E is prepared to pull the plug on power in areas where peak winds will start early Wednesday morning and last through mid-Thursday afternoon.
The scope of the planned outage, extending to over half of California's 58 counties, will far exceed the very first public safety power shutoff declared by PG&E in October of past year, which impacted 60,000 customers, Sarkissian said.
PG&E Corp., the California utility giant forced into bankruptcy by two years of devastating wildfires, warned that it may orchestrate its biggest planned blackout yet to keep power lines from sparking more blazes.
The company has been notifying potentially impacted customers and will continue to do so, via automated calls, texts and emails.
The power will be shut off in stages, PG&E said in a Tuesday statement, "depending on local timing of the severe weather conditions, beginning with counties in the northern part of the state". To sign up for text alerts, text "ENROLL" to 97633.
