PG&E - ROTATING POWER OUTAGE

"Updated information indicates that based on current energy supply forecasts, rotating power outages are likely to occur today (Monday, August 17, 2020) in Fresno County – Monday beginning as early as 1500 until 2200 (3PM-10PM) Outages re planned to be short in duration- ( 1-3 hours) to lessen impacts on customers.

PG&E Encourages Customers to Conserve Electricity as California ISO Declares Flex Alert on Monday - Conserve Power Between 3 p.m. and 10 p.m. to help prevent the need for rotating outages.

The safety of our customers, employees and communities is PG&E’s most important responsibility and customers are urged to be prepared for power outages.

PG&E strongly urges all customers to conserve energy through next Wednesday.

  • Raise the thermostat: Cool homes and use air conditioners more during morning hours. Set the thermostat to 78 degrees when at home during the rest of the day, health permitting. Turn it up to 85 degrees or turn it off when not at home.
  • Use a ceiling fan: Turn on a ceiling fan when using the air conditioner, which will allow the thermostat to be raised about 4 degrees to save on cooling costs with no reduction in comfort. Turn off fans and lights when you leave the room.
  • Cover windows: Use shade coverings and awnings so the air conditioner won’t have to work as hard to cool the home.
  • Avoid using the oven: Instead, cook on the stove, use a microwave or grill outside.
  • Limit the opening of refrigerators, which are major users of electricity in most homes. The average refrigerator is opened 33 times a day.

Clean clothes and dishes early: Use large energy-consuming appliances like washing machines and dishwashers earlier in the day or late at night after 10:00 pm.”
