PSPS: How will it effect me.......

There is a lot of confusion concerning the Public Safety Power Shutoff or “PSPS” that all of Southern California Edsion (SCE) customers are currently facing. In an effort to help understand this program, here is our understanding, from what we have been told and have gathered from the countless meetings we have attended, regarding enactment.

The concept of PSPS is to de-energize distribution lines, “circuits,” before that distribution equipment might be involved in the cause of a fire. SCE has created a system for monitoring weather conditions that they believe could lead to their equipment causing a fire. The actual criteria are complex, to many and varied to discus here, even if we knew and understood them all.  Red Flag warnings exhibit some of those conditions and the most likely time for de-energization, but a Red Flag warning is not a prerequisite.  When weather conditions start looking to be favorable for fire ignition concerns, SCE will start compiling a list(s) of circuits it deems under threat. Those consideration lists will be compiled and distributed to Gov’t agencies, cities and town, within 72-48 hours in advance of de-energizing a circuit. TCEP receives these lists.

SCE will not just turn the power off and call it a PSPS de-energization. There is a protocol. When consideration lists are generated and distributed, the 48-72 hour clock starts ticking. Any circuit that is on the list could be de-energized after 48-72 hours. SCE has said they reserve the right to de-energize even sooner, once on that list, but conditions have to be very extreme to warrant de-energization without at least a 24-48 hour consideration.

If SCE decides de-energization is necessary, it will post the times for de-energization. Once de-energized, SCE will have to physically inspect the entire circuit first before it will re-energize it. The amount of time varies with the circuit, but we have been told it will take a minimum of 12-24 hours, sometimes more.

So how will you know if you will be without electricity? We are discussing with the 3rd District Supervisors office a way for possibly the Los Angeles Count Office of Emergency Management (OEM) to develop a system of alerts. Right now, SCE will notify all its customers of de-energization. Since we have not yet experienced a PSPS here in Topanga we have no experience as to how well that will work. You can sign up/update your contact information for alerts with SCE. You will need to  be registered and have an account online with SCE:

Those critical care patients with life sustaining needs that require electricity for those needs, SCE will make sure you have personally received an  early notice, going as far as coming to knock on your door if they do not receive confirmation of your getting the message.  For that you can sign up with SCE here:

TCEP also monitors the SCE consideration list and will endeavor to the best of its "all volunteer" status ability, to notify residents in the spirit it notifies residents about fires and other emergency incidents.
