In response to an inquiry by Plumas News, a spokesperson for PG&E said that the utility is working as safely and as quickly as possible to restore power to approximately 2,513 Plumas County customers whose power is impacted by the winter weather. According to PG&E, most of the customers are in the greater Quincy area, Bucks Lake and Strawberry, and their power was impacted late Sunday night.
Snow on fallen trees and electrical equipment is creating power outages, and it’s also creating access issues along Highway 70. As soon as PG&E receives an estimated time of restoration, it will notify customers either by text or by automated phone call.
PG&E is in the process of deploying a generator to Plumas District Hospital to help keep the power on. “The hospital’s generator failed and the safety of our customers, employees and communities we serve is our most important responsibility and so we are happy to help provide backup power,” the spokesperson said.
