Geographic Data Related to Rotating Outages
PG&E provides geographic information which outlines the boundaries of the rotating outage block areas within our service territory to public safety agencies, the public, the media and customers. We are providing this information to assist the public in preparing for potential rotating outages. Because electric circuits do not necessarily conform to street maps, the rotating outage boundary information is fairly general in nature. Moreover, this data represents a snapshot of our electric distribution configuration as it exists at this time. Because the electric system is a very dynamic, multifaceted operation, there may be variations in the outage areas at any given time due to subsequent construction, maintenance or other operational considerations as well as subsequent reconfiguration of the circuits. PG&E assumes no liability for any decisions made by any entity based on the use of this map or data.
