From SDGE


SDG&E crews will upgrade nearly 30 transmission poles around the Borrego Springs community between Wednesday, February 7 and Friday, February 9. To accommodate the work, customers will experience a momentary outage (less than 15 minutes) at 3 a.m. February 7 and again on February 9 as crews transfer to and from the larger energy grid. At SDGE we understand these outages can be disruptive and appreciate your patience while we conduct this important work to build a more resilient electric system.
