    PG&E tool shows estimated time of power shutoffs

    PG&E tool shows estimated time of power shutoffs

    August 18, 2020

    If youíre concerned about losing power during the rolling outages, PG&E has a tool that allows you to see the estimated time that youíll be without electricity.

    The tool requires you to know your outage block number, which you can find by entering your address here. Once you know that number, you can see the estimated shutoff time here.

    Outage block number 50 is exempt from blackouts, according to ABC7News.

    Rolling outages, which are likely through Wednesday, occur when the California Independent System Operator determines there isnít enough energy available to meet the demand. The ISO recommends setting your thermostat to 78 degrees, avoiding using major appliances and unplugging unused electronics during the day to conserve energy.
