If extreme fire danger conditions threaten a portion of the electric system serving your community, it may be necessary for us to turn off electricity in the interest of public safety. This is called a Public Safety Power Shutoff. When possible in advance of an outage, we will send notifications to the phone and email contacts we have on file. Update your contact information now or call 1-866-743-6589 during normal business hours.
If we have your current phone number on file, we'll attempt to let you know when your power is out through a call or text.
