Power Shutoff Information and Resources

Update: Wednesday, November 20, 12:30 p.m. -- No Public Safety Power Shutoff Planned in Walnut Creek

PG&E is proactively shutting down power to thousands of customers in the north bay and Sierra foothills, but does not see a significant threat from winds in the east bay.  As a result, there is no indication that power will be shut off for Walnut Creek or any Contra Costa County properties.  Please note that the winds are still strong, and there may be service interruptions that happen as a result.  You will need to contact PG&E if your power goes out to report it.   

While Walnut Creek is not part of this week's power shutoff, we could be in the target zone in the future.   If you haven't already updated your contact information with PG&E, take a moment to do so in order to get advance warning.  To receive zip code alerts via phone call please dial 1-877-9000-PGE to enroll. Alerts will be delivered via automated call. To sign up for text alerts, text "ENROLL" to 97633.

 We also ask that you register for notifications from the City, by registering through our WC Alerts.  That is as simple as texting WCALERT to 888-777.  As more details become available, we will send updates to those who have registered and post information on our social media channels. The City has established a non-emergency power outage hotline at 925-256-3555.
