KHSL - PG&E electric crews will start patrolling in the air, in vehicles, and on foot nearly all the power lines that were de-energized starting on Monday for the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event. Once lines are inspected and found free of damage or hazards, PG&E says it can proceed with restoring power to customers.
Restoration for the vast majority of customers impacted by this PSPS event is expected to be completed by the end of the day Wednesday, according to PG&E.
