Our response to COVID-19
We’ve made some changes due to COVID-19, including suspending service disconnections for residential and small business customers for nonpayment, and only continuing critical work needed to protect public safety and reduce the risk of wildfires. Learn more here. If you have recently lost your job, even if you are receiving unemployment benefits, you may qualify for a reduced energy rate through our CARE or FERA programs. Learn more.

Public Safety Power Shutoff - Am I Impacted?

Due to improved fire weather conditions brought on by widespread rains and snowfall in fire-prone areas at the end of last year, we have not had any Public Safety Power Shutoff events since early November. Please check back for regular updates.

When there is a high risk for a wildfire, we may temporarily shut off power to your neighborhood to prevent our electric system from becoming the source of an ignition.

Notes:
1) While we update the list of impacted counties regularly, real-time data may be delayed or limited as field and weather conditions are dynamic and change constantly.
2) Customer counts are calculated by circuits within each county. If a circuit is in two or more counties, the customers will be counted in each county, which will result in an overcount. Final counts for each event are available in after-event reporting, available here.

 

Customer Resources During a PSPS

SCE Community Crew Vehicles and Community Resource Centers are available to support customers during Public Safety Power Shutoffs. Services are being provided in observance of social distancing practices and include pre-packaged Customer Resiliency Kits including PSPS information, light snacks, water, small resiliency devices, and Personal Protection Equipment (PPEs) for customer use. SCE asks that customers wear masks and practice social distancing with other members of the public and the SCE employees. PSPS preparedness information shared at the in-person CRCs and CCVs is also available virtually on sce.com.

Powering Off for Wildfire Safety

When there are potentially dangerous weather conditions in fire-prone areas, we may need to call a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event. During these events, we will proactively turn off power in high fire risk areas to reduce the threat of wildfires. Turning off our customers’ power is not something we take lightly, but PSPS events are one of the ways we can better ensure the safety of the public, our customers, and our employees.

How do PSPS events work?

When forecasts indicate elevated weather conditions, we’ll begin assessing the potential impact to affected areas. We’ll analyze historical data to help predict the likelihood of a wildfire occurring, closely monitor weather watch alerts from the National Weather Service (NWS), and place incident responders on alert, if needed.
