PG&E TO CUSTOMERS: HAVE A PLAN FOR UPCOMING SPRING STORMS

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) meteorologists are forecasting that spring storms will impact its service area today and Thursday. PG&E is urging its customers to take the necessary steps to be prepared and stay safe.

PG&E meteorologists forecast a late spring storm moving into the service area beginning this afternoon. Moderate to heavy rain will begin tonight into early Thursday morning with gusty south winds 25 – 35 mph.

“With this late season storm approaching our service area, we encourage customers to be prepared and have a plan. Our teams in the field are ready for the inclement weather, and should outages occur they will work safely and quickly to restore service to our customers,” said Ron Richardson, Director of Distribution for Field Operations, North.

PG&E’s meteorology team has developed a Storm Outage Prediction Model that incorporates real-time weather forecasts, historical data and system knowledge to predict where and when storm impacts will be most severe. This model enables the company to pre-stage crews and equipment as storms approach to enable rapid response to outages.
