Help with Financial Challenges and Payments
To help with financial challenges due to COVID-19, we are temporarily suspending disconnections for customers unable to pay their bill. Some Authorized Payment Agencies may close or provide intermittent service. We will waive late payment charges if this affects your ability to make a timely payment. If you need help, visit

Outage Center


Welcome to the Outage Center

We are committed to keeping you informed. If your power is out or you are looking for outage resources, you’re in the right place.

Powering Off for Safety

One of the ways we’re reducing wildfire risks is Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events. During these events, we may need to proactively shut off power in high fire risk areas as a result of extreme weather conditions.

View Your Maintenance Outages

To support our customers that are responsibly staying home at this time, we are postponing less urgent upgrades to the grid. We may, however, still need to schedule essential outages for critical work that addresses emergency and public safety issues. You can learn more about how we’re approaching these essential outages on our Response to COVID-19 page.

If you received a notice from us about an essential outage, you can check its status using the Outage Number on your notification. ​

To find out where essential outages will be happening in the upcoming weeks, review this list of upcoming maintenance outages.
