  • Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) – If severe weather threatens a portion of the electric system, it may be necessary for PG&E to turn off electricity in the interest of public safety.  While no single factor drives a PSPS, some factors include: a Red Flag Warning; low humidity levels, generally 20% and below; forecasted sustained winds above 25 MPH gusting in excess of 45 MPH, depending on location and site-specific conditions; condition of dry fuel; on-the-ground, real-time observations by PG&E crews and Safety Operations.  Helpful links include:
