UPDATE: 9:35 p.m.: A PG&E spokesman said that crews have been able to safely restore 875 customers at this time. A crew is patrolling the line and working safely and as quickly as possible to identify the cause and restore power to those affected.
The lights went off in Quincy and East Quincy this evening, Dec. 17, capping off a week when the power supply was repeatedly disrupted, but most customers had regained power just a couple of hours earlier.
PG&E confirmed that the outage began at 7:56 p.m. affecting 3,140 customers in the Quincy area. PG&E crews are currently enroute to the area to investigate the cause of the outage. More information will be shared when it becomes available.
Plumas News confirmed this evening that PG&E plans to switch Quincy customers away from the generators and back to the Feather River Canyon transmission lines tomorrow. Power would be turned off at 5 p.m. and last approximately one hour during the switch. However, it is currently unknown how this latest outage impacts those plans. Again, more information will be shared when it becomes available.
