HomeLocalChester to Run off Generator Power for One WeekChester to Run off Generator Power for One WeekWed, July 20, 2022SHARE NOW As part of the ongoing Dixie fire PG&E repairs, Chester will finally see some permanent poles installed this week to bring relief to power instability. 26 wooden poles and other equipment along the transmission lines that run along HWY36 between Hamilton Branch and Chester will be replaced. During this time Chester will be powered by a generator at the Chester substation. It will be running from this Friday through next Friday the 29th. Once work is completed next Friday PG&E will disconnect the generator from the transmission line and you will lose power. PG&E is expecting that to occur at around 3 pm that Friday and will be minimal.
