PG&E to host virtual event Oct. 7 on power outages

LAKE COUNTY, Calif.— To help protect customers and communities during this hot and historically dry wildfire season, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. is adjusting the sensitivity of some of its electric equipment in high fire-threat districts to automatically turn off power faster if the system detects a problem.

This effort is helping to prevent potential wildfires but is causing outages for some customers.

For those interested in learning more and asking questions, PG&E is hosting a webinar this Thursday for Lake County residents.

The webinar will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 7.

The meeting link is here.

Community members also can attend by phone; dial in at 888-469-1928. The conference ID is 9392058.

The webinar will include information about:

— Why PG&E has adjusted settings in communities to reduce the risk of wildfire;
— Steps the company is taking to reduce the frequency and length of outages;
— Ongoing efforts to strengthen the electric system against severe weather and other environmental risks; and
— Resources that are available to support customers.

Throughout the webinar, customers will also have opportunities to ask questions of PG&E experts. Closed captioning will be available in English, Spanish and Chinese.

For those who are unable to join, a copy of the presentation materials and a recording of the event will be available at
