PG&E’s 24-Hour Emergency and Customer Service Line: 1-800-743-5002
Customers with generator should make sure they are properly installed by a licensed electrician. Improperly installed generators pose a significant danger to our crews.

Unplug or turn off all electric appliances to avoid overloading circuits and fire hazards when power is restored. Simply leave a single lamp on to alert you when power returns. Turn your appliances back on one at a time when conditions return to normal.

If you lose power overnight, you can call PG&E to request a wake-up call. We’ll be happy to give you a wake-up call, as well as up-to-date information on your outage and time of restoration.
