Second Round of Blackouts

SACRAMENTO — More than 273,000 California residents are experiencing a second round of rolling blackouts on Saturday.


The California Office of Emergency Services’ dashboard says there are 273,289 residents without power.

Officials report 67,401 customers experiencing the outages in San Joaquin County.

California ISO initially said they were not planning on implementing rolling power outages on Saturday.


Residents are encouraged to conserve energy through the heat wave, which is expected to end Wednesday.


California ISO issued a Grid Warning Notice around noon Saturday. Rolling power outages would last one to two hours, but no customers will be impacted overnight, PG&E said.


On Friday, PG&E implemented rolling power outages that affected roughly 220,000 customers to relieve the strain on the power grid during the heatwave.
