According to the Winters Police Department, the power outage experienced across Winters this afternoon was not part of the Public Power Safety Shut-off (PSPS) planned for other parts on the North Bay region, including adjacent Napa and Solano Counties today.

Neither Pacific Gas and Electric’s (PG&E) informational address look-up service, outage maps, nor county agencies like the Yolo County Office of Emergency Services (Yolo OES) advertised an outage would take place in the City of Winters this afternoon. Representatives from PG&E were unable to clarify the nature of the outage. information was because the event was not part of the increasingly common wildfire prevention tactic that’s left customers shaking fists from Clearlake to Clarksburg. Power outages from throughout the city and Golden Bear reportedly affected 2,022 customers for around one hour, until power was restored in Winters around 6:24 p.m., according to an Express reporter out on scene.  ]]>
