PARADISE, Calif. - If you live in Paradise, prepare yourself for a brief power outage over the weekend.

PG&E will shut off power to nearly the entire town for two hours early Monday morning to make upgrades to a substation, PG&E said.

The outage will begin at about midnight and last until 2 a.m. Monday. According to PG&E customers affected have been notified by letter.

PG&E said they will utilize the two-hour window to install more guards designed to prevent birds and animals like squirrels from coming into contact with high-voltage substation equipment, which can cause power outages.

Crews will also do some light maintenance on high-voltage equipment.

The early morning time was chosen so it would have the least impact on 3,842 residences and businesses, according to PG&E.
