California is taking unprecedented measures to protect all California residents and businesses from the risk of wildfire.  As PG&E implements its Public Safety Power Shutoff program to reduce the risk of wildfires this season, Lodi Electric is committed to ensuring customers are informed and prepared.

  • Certain conditions, when paired with extreme weather events, can pose an increased risk of wildfire.  These conditions include:
  • High wind days; low humidity levels
  • Dry vegetation that could fuel a wildfire
  • Red Flag Warnings declared by the National Weather Service

  • The PG&E facilities that provide transmission of power to Lodi are not located within high fire threat areas.  However, to the extent that actions taken by PG&E to reduce the risk of wildfire have broader implications on the power grid, the City of Lodi may experience power outages.
  • Because of the integrated nature of the power grid, PG&E’s decision to use power outages as a wildfire mitigation measure is beyond Lodi Electric’s control; however, every step will be taken to restore power as soon as possible in the event of an outage.
  • PG&E has met with Lodi Electric staff to discuss communication plans in the event of a Public Safety Power Shutoff and will continue to discuss the specific impacts to Lodi.
  • City staff are working to identify emergency/cooling centers in the event of a citywide power outage.

Sign up for Electric Outage and Emergency Alerts through the City’s Alert Center at under Notify Me for updates and information as it becomes available.
