Long Beach Update

At this time, the majority of customers have been restored. We will attempt to restore power to some of the 260 affected customers between 6:00PM and 10:00PM. Due to the extent of the damage, some customers may remain without power overnight. The distribution center at Cesar Chavez Park will be open until midnight to pass out water, ice and flashlights, and will re-open at 8:00AM tomorrow.We encourage customers in Long Beach to make every effort to conserve use of electricity today as we continue to return the system to its full operational capacity. The safety of the public and our crews remain our highest priority. We thank the city of Long Beach for its cooperation and for the safety efforts of first responders in the Long Beach Fire and Police departments. Get the latest update >

  • Telecommunications: New facilities to connect the project to our existing telecommunications system, including 85 miles of new fiber optic communication cables on existing transmission line poles and on seven replacement poles, constructing new interest poles, placing segments of cable in existing underground conduit, and placing cable in new underground conduit.
