Long Beach Update

As of 4:52 p.m. today, we restored service to all identified customers without service in the Long Beach area. Customers are now receiving electrical service from both electric network or through temporary generators.

Our work crews will continue to make repairs and test the underground network systems, and will start transitioning customers off generators to the electrical network during the evening and morning hours.

When this happens, these customers will experience a short power outage, which could last up to 45 minutes for most. For a couple of customer locations, our representatives will be informing those customers that the outage during the transition period could be longer due to additional operating procedures to safely reconnect them back to the electrical network. These actions are to ensure they are connected back to the network properly and in a safe manner.

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 >
