Shutoffs Not Expected in the City of Alameda

ALAMEDA, CA - NCPA Geothermal Plant #1 is generation-ready and will resume normal operations once PG&E completes its mandatory safety inspections and re-energizes its transmission lines. 
Alameda Municipal Power does not expect the public safety power shutoff, issued for Tuesday and Wednesday in Alameda County, to impact the city of Alameda.

High Winds
This specific power shutoff has been issued because of possible high winds in the East Bay hills that could trigger fires. PG&E has identified the specific substations that it will shut off in parts of Alameda and Contra Costa counties, if needed to prevent fires. There have been no warnings issued for the transmission lines that feed Alameda.

AMP Continues to Monitor the Situation
AMP is continuing to monitor the situation closely, but does not expect any impact to the city at this time.
