PG&E announces restoration of power to all customers in Butte County
As part of its commitment to help its customers and communities with the recovery and rebuilding process, Pacific Gas and Electric Company said that nearly all customers in Paradise and surrounding areas who are able to receive electric service have now been restored. Since Camp Fire restoration started, approximately 10,000 electric customers who can receive service now have power. On Sunday, December 16, PG&E crews restored electric service to essentially all customers who can receive power within the fire footprint, with work continuing this week to reach a few isolated homes and businesses. Gas service restoration efforts continue on schedule, and most customers who can receive gas service are expected to be restored by next month with all customers projected to be restored by March 2019. Individual restorations for electric or gas service in the fire-impacted area may not be possible. In those instances, PG&E will be working with local leaders on a longer-term plan to rebuild the electric and gas system.
