We are preparing microgrids in areas most likely to experience PSPS events to provide electricity to areas that are safe to keep energized. Microgrids can allow PG&E to serve certain customers and key community resources using temporary generation during a PSPS event. Customers may experience a brief power outage, if they are being disconnected from the larger grid and connected to a temporary generation solution, during a PSPS event. While we make every effort to operate microgrids during PSPS events, we are not able to guarantee electricity to all customers potentially served by a microgrid during all PSPS conditions. Customers are encouraged to continue to take steps on their own to prepare for the possibility of an outage.
