In response to California Independent System Operator (CAISO)
recent calls for utilities to reduce load by instituting rotating
outages, PG&E has developed a tool to help customers see
how they might be affected
Rotating outages are organized by circuit blocks dispersed across PG&E's service area and sequenced to minimize the amount of disruption for each customer.
The online tool at PGE.com/rotatingoutages allows customers to look up their circuit block and sub-block. They can then look for their block and sub-block on a table of forecasted outages for the day.
With the heatwave expected to continue at least through Thursday night, PG&E strongly encourages all customers to continue conserving to reduce overall power demand.
HOW TO USE THE ROTATING OUTAGE LOOKUP TOOL
- Use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari or Edge Chromium browsers
- Go to PGE.com/rotatingoutages
- Click on “Look up your rotating outage block number.”
- Enter your address
- Read your block and sub-block.
- Find your block and sub-block on the table.
- If your block or sub-block does not appear you are not expected to be subject to a rotating outage.
- If your block and sub-block do appear, you could be subject to an outage of up to three hours in the event CAISO calls for rolling outages because the state’s power demand is within 3 percent of available supply.
At this time, it does not appear that any blocks or sub-blocks in San Anselmo are on the CAISO rotating outage list for Tuesday.
