Plumas County Power Outage Update


Afternoon update: PG&E crews have restored power to about half of the homes impacted in the Quincy area.  No cause has been identified, but restoration efforts continue. Plumas Sierra Rural Electric also reports power has been restored to most of its customers.

In Plumas County if you are on PG&E power as of 11 a.m. today PG&E crews are investigating the outage that began just before 9 this morning. Just over 3,000 homes in Quincy, near the Greenville Wye and along Bucks Lake Road between Quincy and Bucks Lake are affected in this outage.
This area is still being served by generators in Quincy, not transmission lines through the canyon, but a PG&E spokesman said there could be an issue with the distribution system.

There are also 300 homes in the Canyon Dam area who lost power late Monday night, as well as about 1,600 homes in the Chester area also out since late last night. PG&E continues to investigate and they appear to be weather-related outages.
