PG&E resources


We understand the importance of keeping the lights on, especially given the current stay-at-home orders. We are determined to do everything possible to address both the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the threat of wildfires. Our goal is to keep you safe and Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events are an important tool in doing so.


All PG&E Community Resource Centers and cooling centers follow state and county guidelines to mitigate COVID-19, including the enforcement of face coverings, temperature checks, social distancing and other precautions.


We have the following resources available to support you throughout a PSPS.
