PG&E Offers Alert Notifications for Power Shutoffs

Written by Estero Bay News

Pacific Gas & Electric customers and non-account holders can sign up for notifications for any address they care about to stay informed about Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events. High winds can cause tree branches and debris to contact energized lines, damage our equipment and cause wildfires. As a result, the utility may need to turn off power during severe weather to prevent wildfires.

Address Alerts might be right for you if:
• You want to know about a PSPS at your home, work, school or other important location
• You are a tenant and do not have a PG&E account
• You need to stay informed about a PSPS affecting a friend or loved one
• Multiple members of your household want to be notified

To sign up for alerts for any address that is important to you or a loved one, visit www.pge.com/addressalert. Alerts are accessible in multiple languages by call and text.

Customers and non-account holders interested in receiving updates on PSPS events for an address where they do not receive a bill can submit one or more addresses. Note, PG&E customers will automatically be enrolled to receive PSPS notifications for any home or business they have an account for.

Customers are encouraged to keep their contact information up to date with PG&E so they can be notified if their specific location will be impacted.
