10/28/2019 9:40AM:
PG&E is experiencing difficulty with some of their equipment. Because of this we cannot estimate a time for restoration.  We will post more information as it becomes available.
10/28/2019 9:15AM:
It appears that PG&E has completed their inspection of the Caribou transmission line and should be able to   energize. At this point, we do not have an exact time of restoration, however, we believe it could be within 2 to 3 hours. We will post more information as it becomes available.
10/28/2019 7:00AM:
We are still waiting for PG&E to update us on the status of the Caribou transmission line. If the line is given “the all clear” (which we  expect  to take 3 to 4 hours), power will be restored to our system. If the line is found to be damaged and cannot be energized, we will attempt the islanding process with HLP. Please keep in mind that due to the nature of this outage and the fact that it caused HLP to be unexpectedly taken offline, the process is difficult and time consuming. As a proactive measure, crews are preparing for islanding should it become necessary. We will post the latest information on this situation as it becomes available.
10/28/2019 3:00 AM:
PG&E will begin patrolling Caribou transmission lines at first light. We will update with more information when it becomes available.
At approx. 10:47 PM on 10/27/19 LMUD experienced a system wide outage. PG&E transmission lines were unexpectedly deenergized causing loss of power to LMUD.
This was not a planned PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event.
PG&E is working to restore power to their transmission system. There is not yet an estimated time for power restoration.
Because of the unexpected nature of the shutdown, Honey Lake Power was also shut off in accordance with standard safety protocol.
LMUD’s phone system was temporarily unavailable on the onset of the outage. Phones have been restored at this time.

At approx. 10:47 PM on 10/28/19 LMUD experienced a system wide outage. PG&E transmission lines were unexpectedly deenergized causing loss of power to LMUD.
This was not a planned PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event.

PG&E is working to restore power to their transmission system. There is not yet an estimated time for power restoration.

Because of the unexpected nature of the shutdown, Honey Lake Power was also shut off per standard safety protocol.

LMUD’s phone system was temporarily unavailable during this time period. Phones have been restored at this time.

 

The current PG&E Public Safety Power Shutdown has not affected or is expected to affect LMUD and our customers. Although LMUD does not purchase power from PG&E, we do receive our power over the PG&E Caribou Transmission line. LMUD and PG&E have established notification and alert protocols that, should allow LMUD sufficient time to disconnect from the Caribou line and “island” with local power producer, Honey Lake Power without impacting or interrupting our power supply.
