Amid extreme heat, forecasted offshore dry wind event means PG&E might need to proactively turn off

SAN FRANCISCO – Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) continues to monitor a potentially widespread, strong and dry offshore wind event forecasted to start Monday evening and continue through midday Wednesday. Given the expected conditions, PG&E began its 24-hour advance notifications to customers in areas where PG&E may need to proactively turn off power for safety to reduce the risk of wildfire from energized power lines. PG&E is learning from past PSPS events, and this year will be making events smaller in size, shorter in length and smarter for customers.
