Utilities in the state of California are now compelled to pre-emptively shutoff power to help avoid sparking wildfires by their power lines during windy days. California Public Utilities Code § 399.2 gives utilities the authority to shut off power in emergency situations whenever necessary to protect public safety, for as long and as often as needed. Customers with solar, without energy storage, will still be affected.
Use this handy map to see if your buildings are inside the CalFire / CPUC danger zones. If you are located inside the colored threat zones, pre-emptive grid outages are highly likely. Because the fire threat zone is so large, every building in California that is connected to the grid is now subject to these outages. Yellow shows elevated fire threat zone. Red is extreme fire threat zone.
