Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) Events
To protect customers and communities from the risk of wildfire, Liberty will temporarily turn off power when weather conditions present an increased fire risk. Power outages might be prolonged, lasting several days. In partnership with fire weather experts, Liberty monitors real-time weather data and forecasts and regularly tests fuel moisture during the fire season. If it is determined that the forecasted conditions meet or exceed safety thresholds, Liberty will initiate a PSPS. This practice of de-energization as a last resort for public safety is regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).

PSPS Alerts
In the event that a PSPS is a possibility, Liberty will attempt to contact customers through calls, texts and emails, using contact information on file. Call 800-782-2506 to update your account's contact information. An online log in can be created through Liberty's website at https://libertyutilities.com. Customers can add their email and contact info to receive notifications.

Update contact information at Liberty on the My Profile webpage or by calling 800-782-2506.
