UPDATE: Power has been restored in San Luis Obispo after an outage that began Monday afternoon.
PG&E says the cause of the outage in the area of Los Osos Valley Road and Madonna Road was due to a non-PG&E backhoe operator who accidentally dug into an underground power line.
Power had been restored by 6 a.m. Tuesday to the approximately 2,000 customers impacted by the outage, which began Monday around 3 p.m.
PG&E says utility lines in the area had been marked before the work began, but they’re looking into whether the line hit was marked or mismarked.
