  • 208 Sutton Way
    Grass Valley, Nevada

211 Connecting Point provides information about rotating power outages / rolling blackouts.

During heatwaves, the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), the organization that runs the state’s electric grid, can call for rotating outages statewide to protect the stability of the grid. All utilities in the state – including PG&E may be called on to participate.
https://www.pge.com/en_US/residential/outages/planning-and-preparedness/safety-and-preparedness/find-your-rotating-outage-block/find-your-rotating-outage-block.page
These outages typically last between 1 to 3 hours for most customers. These are not Public Safety Power Shutoffs due to extreme fire danger, and are not related to any issues with PG&E’s equipment or its ability to deliver energy locally.
