PG&E to begin restoring power to areas impacted by shutoffs

Posted at 8:10 AM, Jan 20, 2021

PG&E says it is patrolling lines de-energized by Power Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) Monday night in advance of high winds expected across parts of California.

Five locations in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties had power turned off Tuesday morning, impacting more than 400 customers.

PG&E’s outage map showed those areas remained without power as of Wednesday at 8 a.m.

An all clear for the remaining counties was given Wednesday morning, which “allows electric crews to begin patrolling in the air, in vehicles and on foot nearly all power lines that were de-energized. Once lines are inspected and found free of damage or hazards, PG&E can proceed with restoring power to customers.”
