This summer and fall, PG&E can shut off power to their distribution and transmission lines to prevent their equipment from starting wildfires. These events are known as PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS). Due to the PSPS, we are currently unable to accept requests for public presentations.  For more information on how to prepare for PSPS, please visit the City of San Jose’s PSPS webpage.
