On Wednesday, Sept. 18, our construction crews will be working in Julian to replace equipment on four poles near the downtown area. For the safety of the crews, electricity in that community will need to be turned off from noon to 5 p.m., to accommodate the work.
To minimize impact on schools, the planned outage is occurring on a day when schools in the area are scheduled to get out early.
The planned outage is expected to affect about 1,600 customers as our crews replace brackets on power poles that hold up wires.
Please know we’ll work to restore your service as safely and quickly as possible. However, unsafe weather conditions or unforeseen events may prolong the power outage or force us to cancel the outage on the scheduled date.
We know being without power is an inconvenience. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.
What You Should do to Prepare for the Planned Outage
Prior to the scheduled outages, we recommend residents unplug all sensitive electrical equipment, such as computers and televisions to prevent damage or data loss. Once power is restored, checking alarm systems and garage door openers is recommended.
Those customers who are enrolled in our Medical Baseline program and have devices that depend on electricity are asked to contact our Planned Outage Coordinator to confirm that they have received the outage notification and to make any necessary arrangements during the planned outage. The outage coordinator can be reached weekdays between 7 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. at 858-654-1785.
If you need assistance after hours or over the weekend, please call 1-800-211-7343. The latest power outage information can be found at sdge.com/outages.
