Based on weather conditions, PG&E has started to restore power this afternoon (Thursday, 10 Oct 2019) to some areas in Northern California and the Bay Area.
However, PG&E is still assessing weather conditions in Alameda and Contra Costa counties and has not yet issued an “all clear” to begin the power restoration process for those affected by the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) in Lafayette. This information could come at any time and we endeavor to alert you once PG&E informs us that the restoration process has begun in Lafayette.
Please note: Once the all clear is given by PG&E, the power restoration process could take several hours, or perhaps a day or longer to complete for all PG&E customers in Lafayette. (Updated 15:15 PDT 10 Oct 2019)
