TOWN OF LOS ALTOS HILLS, CA: The County of Santa Clara and the Town of Los Altos Hills are preparing to respond to the impacts of a possible PG&E Power Shutoff. PG&E informed County and City officials that Santa Clara County is under a “Public Safety Power Shutoff Watch,” and current weather conditions may lead to a de-energization event within the next 12 to 24 hours.

Although the Town and County are taking action to respond to the potential impacts of an extended loss of power should it occur, the decision to shut down the power and the speed at which it is restored comes solely from PG&E.

PG&E currently reports that the power shutoff would start in the early morning of Wednesday, October 9, and would expand through Thursday of this week, October 10, 2019. Residents should prepare for the possibility of losing power early Wednesday morning. Re-energization may begin on Thursday, and PG&E anticipates it will take up to five days to completely restore power to all customers once the restoration process begins.

For updates and to identify service areas that may be affected by a potential power outage, residents should visit the below link and check individual addresses on PG&E’s interactive potential outage map or call PG&E’s 24-hour power outage information center at 1-800-743-5002.
