LMUD Power Outage Update

July 19, 2021: 6:25am
HLP has made repairs to their equipment. However, they are not able to start the plant without power from PG&E. LMUD’s operations center is working with PG&E and HLP to coordinate efforts to provide HLP with enough power to test the repaired equipment and hopefully restart the plant. The estimated time of restoration to the LMUD system remains the same. We are still advising customers to expect power to be out for the remainder of today and possibly into this evening. This may change and we will keep you updated as information becomes available. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

At approximately 7:00pm on Sunday, July 18, Honey Lake Power experienced an equipment failure causing a system-wide outage for Lassen Municipal Utility District.
Due to wildfires, LMUD has been receiving power from HLP since July 13. We are unable to reconnect to the PG&E Caribou transmission line leaving our system without a viable power source.
We are working with HLP and PG&E to assess the situation, however, we are advising all customers, that at this time, they should prepare for an extended outage lasting at least 24 hours and possibly longer.
We will keep the community updated as information is made available to us.
