PG&E announces it will move forward with planned power outages for 179,000 customers in 17 counties, including Kern


PG&E said Wednesday morning it will move forward with its latest Public Safety Power Shutoff due to high risk for wildfires.

Local PG&E representative Katie Allen said Tuesday the PSPS is expected to impact 33 customers in Bakersfield, 41 in Arvin and 4 in Lebec. PG&E began notifying customers within the PSPS footprint in Kern County Tuesday morning. Based on current forecasts, the peak winds would blow from about 2 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 24, until about noon on Friday, Oct. 25.

Once the “all clear” signal is given, inspections and restoration activities would start.
