Rolling blackouts may occur in Pasadena this summer due to an interruption from one of the state’s major power supplies from SoCal Gas.

The City of Pasadena and the PWP are doing everything possible to avoid interruption to your electrical service. In fact, Pasadena has made great strides to ensure our energy portfolio is diverse with renewable and traditional sources. According to the PWP website, here are things you can do:

Here Are Some Key Tips To Help You Prepare Should A Rolling Blackout Occur:

  • Sign up for PWP’s Outage Management System– receive a phone call when power is out and when power is restored  
  • Sign up for Flex Alerts 
  • Have a back-up generator handy and tested, especially if you rely on a plug-in medical device
    •    Register with your qualified medical device with Pasadena Medical Assistance Program
      • Plug electrical devices into the back-up generator using a heavy duty extension cord
      • Do not connect the output of your back-up generator directly to your home wiring or service panel
      • Please read and understand the manufacturer’s instructions for the back-up generator before it is connected to your electrical circuits
  • Notify PWP’s Customer Service team that you rely on a medical plug-in device by calling 626.744.4005
  • Also bookmark and check the City’s main homepage for important citywide emergency info and updates
  • Have an emergency preparedness kit in your home, car and office
