How long will my electricity be out if a public safety power shutoff is necessary?

November 30, 2023

Each situation is unique. In areas of greater risk, including the La Grange and Diablo Grande areas, outage times may be longer depending on the severity and urgency of the situation.  In the case of a PSPS, the utility, whether TID or PG&E will have to confirm the decrease in risk factors for the area, inspect the lines for damage and other potential risks and then re-energize the lines. Depending on the size of the area affected, this could take several days.
