About 3,500 people are without power in parts of Clayton and Concord on Monday evening. The outage occurred just before 6 p.m.

It’s unknown what caused the outage, but PG&E says power should be restored by about 12:15 a.m.

UPDATE: The power is now expected to be restored by Tuesday at 1 p.m.

UPDATE: Power to everyone except for 540 customers has been restored.

The assessment crew has been en route for over 2 hours. They need to specify if en route means walking or crawling.

That’s pretty funny.

Good one!

You will have to fill out your yes on recall ballot by candle light.

Laya September 13, 2021 at 11:34 PM

It would have been more cost effective to put our over $250+ million recall dollars into doing something about PG&E. The power goes out frequently off Marsh Creek Rd.

@ Lava ~ Newsom slashed $150 million from Cal Fire’s wildfire prevention budget… why don’t you suggest he use that money for PG&E…. I wonder what was more important for Newsom to spend that money on than stopping the wildfires that are choking us half to death every summer?
Newsom went on to lie about fire prevention saying that his efforts resulted in fire prevention work on 90,000 acres…. but the state’s own data show the actual number is 11,399…. he lied.

I wasn’t aware that extra funding for PG&E was also on the ballot.

poor management indirectly #RecallGavinNewsom

Absolutely no correlation between Governor Nuisance and PG&E’s continuing effort to put profits ahead of safety and reliability. Visit reality more often.

Bdpirate September 13, 2021 at 7:57 PM

More like 10,000+ without.
Pge I’m sure has 30 people at the substation at YVR/Pine Hollow Rd and 3 trying to figure out what happened and the rest playing cards.

Right about now everyone’s freezers are above freezing and rising..and in house temps probably 85..ouch!

My neighbors questioned why we put a General whole house generator in months ago..just for times like this..

MattfromConcord September 13, 2021 at 9:06 PM

Times like this ???? I’ve lived here for over 50 years and this is many the 5 time the powers been out for more then a few hours. Not worth the investment for 4-5 times in 50 years.

Bdpirate September 13, 2021 at 9:38 PM

@Matt,
For us it’s an inexpensive no brainer investment. When you got money you pretty much do whatever you want without looking at costs.

nytemuvr September 13, 2021 at 10:48 PM

@Bdpirate…In my long, not so illustrious life, I’ve come to realize that people that spout off about how much money they have are like the people that bring up their high IQ in conversation. I pretty much don’t believe anything they say or claim, they’re just delusional and I keep my distance, it has suited me well.

Bdpirate September 14, 2021 at 7:13 AM

@Nyt
Well there you go you self describe yourself and you’re not so electrious life, so of course you’re going to doubt every person that is ahead above yours and any manner described, sounds perfectly logical that you probably took the wrong direction when you came to that fork in the road long long ago..
You don’t have to have an illustrious life to have money… You just need to stop on the little people to get ahead and to the top..
Move on..you deserve it

Marilyn King September 13, 2021 at 8:11 PM

8:05 P.M. Power back on. Thank you PG&E

Bdpirate September 13, 2021 at 9:02 PM

I just got a text message update they say power should be restored by 1:00 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, sounds like PG&e crews don’t know what the hell they’re doing..

Nope! September 13, 2021 at 9:08 PM

Power is out from the last stoplight on Marsh Creek Rd (Regency Dr) all the way out to the trailer park at the very least. Expected restore now says 1pm TOMORROW!!! I hope they fat-fingered the am and pm and meant 1AM

Bdpirate September 13, 2021 at 9:35 PM

Totally unacceptable repair taking almost 20 hours, where the part coming from China?
PGE you just can’t do anything right nowdays can you.

Have had several knocks on our door asking to store stuff in our freezers and refrigerators.

We are seriously thinking about getting a bigger gen and running it full time and totally ditch elec service from them.

Me September 14, 2021 at 2:12 AM

Not going to lie. You sound like a child. You complain about everything. How about you go to the site and try to fix it? You act like everything that happens should be fixed with-in mins. That’s not how real life works

OverWhelmed September 14, 2021 at 9:46 AM

@Me
20 hours is just a little excessive don’t you think? If you had a loved one on support that was without electricity for 20 hours you would be the first in line to sue them if something bad happened. You are a troll and a shi…t disturber. Go troll your a…ss and shut up.

A Aron September 13, 2021 at 10:20 PM

Power is back on!! Power outage party is canceled!!

chauncy September 13, 2021 at 10:20 PM

power is back, all hail PGE

City Girl September 13, 2021 at 10:48 PM

Not back on here. I live off Wilson near Bailey.

The most recent recorded message a PG&E is that power should be restored by 5:32 AM. Not good!

My house is cooling off. It’s 79°!!!

Justifiable languor September 14, 2021 at 7:33 AM

Bailey? That is no where near East of Ygnacio at Clayton-Kirker Pass!

Chris September 14, 2021 at 1:06 AM

We live in Lafayette. The power goes out approximately 2 to 3 times a year where we live. The power usually is back on within a few hours. We are usually updated when the power is expected to go back on but never a reason as to why it was disrupted. Has anyone else notice their bills increasing? I know we are using less power as two of our daughters have moved out.

Yves Harlowe September 14, 2021 at 11:17 AM

Bills are going up because PGE keeps getting rate increases approved. We have upgraded our insulation, replaced the windows with low e, use LED lights, don’t leave lights on, have attic fans and a whole house fan – we’ve spent a lot of money to make our house more energy efficient. Yet, our bills keep going up. There are only two of us, and I’m just shocked at the bills.

We bought a portable generator a couple of years ago and use it to run our chest freezer and refrigerator when the power goes out. It’s paid for itself by preserving our food during longer blackouts.

Nope! September 14, 2021 at 7:26 AM

I guess this is what happens when the State sues the utility into bankruptcy a couple times. Eventually, they will become a State-owned entity and the power will be off WAY more often – just like other 3rd world countries. This is pathetic. Oh and #RecallNewsom too while I’m at it.

Marsh Creek resident September 14, 2021 at 8:39 AM

Still out on Marsh Creek. Just woke up to them flying around in a helicopter trying to figure it out. With a high of 94 degrees today I really hope them idiots figure it out soon…not holding my breath.

Ricardoh September 14, 2021 at 9:56 AM

So this guy up in Mendocino County is working on his house and sees smoke. So he thinks oh there is smoke and goes back to work on his house. An hour later he sees a lot of smoke and calls the fire in.
Not long ago I posted that we need fire watches all over California and someone sent in a 2005 list of all the fire lookouts we had. Anyway this fire could have been put out in a hour but no it was allowed to grow. Fires have to be put out immediately. They cannot be allowed to grow. We have one fire going on now for two months.

JJ2 September 14, 2021 at 11:59 AM

It’s all part of the get rid of Newsome Conspiracy….
Grey Davis was recalled because of blackouts, PG&E is working to give Gav-Gav the boot….
/SARC/

JJ2 Wrong,From ABC news 10 SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office exerted control over a powerful state agency that is supposed to operate independently, “micromanaging” decisions big and small at the California Public Utilities Commission according to its former executive director.

“We do whatever the governor tells us to do, period,” former CPUC executive director Alice Stebbins said. “You don’t do anything without [Gov. Newsom’s] staff reviewing it or talking to you or approving it. And that’s the way it was.”
