Public Safety Power Shutoff

Some areas we serve are at an increased risk of catastrophic wildfires. As a safety precaution, electricity could be turned off in wildfire high risk areas during extreme weather events for public safety in an effort to prevent a fast-moving, hard to fight wildfire. The measure would only be used as a last resort to help ensure community safety.  

The goal is to impact as few customers as possible in pre-identified areas through a highly-targeted, circuit by circuit manner in the rare chance a Public Safety Power Shutoff is used.
