Stay informed with outage alerts delivered via text, email or phone

We'll provide updates that include the cause of the outage as well as when you can expect power to be back on. PG&E offers two types of outage alerts:


  • Individual outage alerts can be set up by visiting our online outage map, where you can search for outages and sign up for alerts for any outage you find. No account on is required.
  • Future outage alerts for your home require you to sign into Your Account on where you can set your outage alert preferences. Once preferences have been set, you will receive outage alerts for any current outages, as well as all future outages.

Set up automated alerts in your online account

Once you set up your alerts, we'll notify you when outages affect your service. You'll get restoration timing and other updates until service is restored.

To sign up for alerts, go to the Profile & Alerts section of Your Account and scroll down to Alert Settings. Set your Outages Alert to "on."
