It’s Important to be Prepared

Parts of San José were impacted by two, multi-day PG&E planned power shutoffs in October 2019. During the 2020 wildfire season, PG&E has indicated that it may again shut off power to their distribution and transmission lines to prevent their equipment from starting wildfires.

Because some distribution and transmission lines powering San José are located in wildfire prone areas outside of city limits, PG&E power shutoffs could impact everyone in San José. The power outages could last multiple days.

The City of San José and San José Clean Energy encourage residents and businesses to be aware of the potential for PG&E power shutoffs and follow PG&E steps to prepare for multi-day power outages.
