Before calling PG&E about a power outage, check to see if other neighbors are affected. This will confirm if an outage has occurred in just your residence or within the neighborhood area. If only your residence is without power, check circuit breakers and/or fuse boxes to see if the problem is limited to the home electric system. After performing these steps, call PG&E's 24-Hour Outage Service Line at 1-800-PGE-5002 or 1-800-743-5002.
After dialing Customer Service and hearing the introduction, you can follow these easy steps to report or get status on an outage:
