Lassen utility announces customers could go several days without power due to Dixie Fire

Lassen Municipal Utility District announced this afternoon at 4 p.m. that due to imminent infrastructure failure from PG&E due to the Dixie Fire, customers should prepare for the possibility to be without power for several days.

“PG&E has informed our operations center that due to the Dixie Fire; their infrastructure is facing imminent failure by 7 p.m. tonight. This means that LMUD will lose our emergency power, leaving the entire system dark. There is no estimate for how long this situation will last, or when power will be restored to our system. Honey Lake Power continues to work on repairing their plant. There is no estimate on when, or if repairs can be made. At this time, we are advising customers to prepare to be without power for several days if not longer,” wrote LMUD.

The question is: What does that mean for PG&E customers in Plumas County. Plumas News has contacted PG&E and is awaiting a response. Plumas News has also reached out to Plumas Sierra Rural Electric to see if it has received a similar notice from PG&E.
