SDGE: Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) a possibility in San Diego and County

From San Diego Gas and Electric (SDGE): As California’s climate conditions have changed, the traditional idea of a fire “season” has evolved into a year-long battle against stronger, faster wildfires. One of our preventative measures to help protect against wildfires is Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events. These events may be called during extreme and potentially dangerous weather conditions.

Changing weather conditions are putting our region at increased risk for wildfires. Although we’ve made great efforts to protect our communities, there are still times during extreme weather when we may shut off power for public safety. A number of critical factors are taken into consideration before this decision is made. Whatever the circumstances, we’ll make every effort to communicate with you in advance. Please know that turning off power in the interest of safety isn’t a decision we take lightly. It’s a last resort during extreme situations.
