ROTATING POWER OUTAGES - PG&E

PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC COMPANY #72991148


When there is high demand on California’s electric grid, PG&E may be ordered to do Rotating Power Outages through different PG&E service block numbers. Estimated restoration times are 2-3 hours after the outage actually starts. The situation remains dynamic and shutoff and restoration times may change.
 
FIND YOUR PG&E BLOCK NUMBER
If there is enough advance notice, you can learn if you will be affected by a Rotating Power Outage by finding your block number at https://www.arcgis.com/apps/instant/lookup/index.html?appid=04b7c901f2ff468daed74df54396d75e or on your PG&E bill in the section that says “Service Information.”
 
The need for outages is determined by the statewide grid operator, the California Independent System Operator or CAISO, not PG&E. Rotating outages are not related to any issues with PG&E's equipment or its ability to deliver energy locally.

SELF-GENERATION INCENTIVE PROGRAM (SGIP) - CPUC

CALIFORNIA PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION #69029060

  • 505 Van Ness Avenue (corner of Van Ness & McAllister)
    San Francisco, San Francisco

The CPUC’s Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) offers rebates for installing energy storage technology at both residential and non-residential facilities. These storage technologies include battery storage systems that can function during a power outage. Depending on the battery and how much you are using it, batteries can provide power for several hours, or longer.

PG&E is a Program Administrator of the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) in its service area.

In preparation for the next wildfire season, the CPUC has authorized funding of more than $1 billion through 2024 for SGIP. This funding includes prioritization of communities living in high fire-threat areas, communities that have experienced two or more utility Public Safety Power Shut-off (PSPS) events, as well as low income and medically vulnerable customers. The funds are also available for “critical facilities” that support community resilience in the event of a PSPS or wildfire.

SELF-GENERATION INCENTIVE PROGRAM (SGIP) - PG&E

PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC COMPANY #70378748


PG&E is a Program Administrator of the statewide Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP), which is providing financial incentives for Medical Baseline customers installing new, qualifying equipment for storing energy for their homes.

The SGIP Equity Resiliency incentive is designed to allow customers to install a home battery storage system at no cost to them. In July 2020, PG&E was approved for the SGIP Marketing Education and Outreach Plan and Financial Assistance pilot, both of which are specifically focused on supporting Medical Baseline customers in HFTD. The Financial Assistance pilot alleviates the need for customers to pay upfront costs and enables additional customers to participate in the program.

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.
