PG&E to host virtual event on Tuesday, October 19, to share information about
local wildfire safety effort and to answer customer questions
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.— To help protect customers and communities during this hot and historically dry wildfire season, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has adjusted the sensitivity of some of its electric equipment in high fire-threat areas to automatically turn off power faster if the system detects a problem. This effort is helping to prevent potential wildfires but is causing outages for some customers. For those interested in learning more and asking questions, PG&E is hosting a webinar next Tuesday for Placer, Nevada and Sierra County residents.
