Power back on for 1,180 Lake of the Pines residents

Power has been restored for 1,180 Lake of the Pine residents who found themselves without electricity earlier today.

The outage was first reported to Pacific Gas and Electric Co. at 10:30 a.m. today, and power was back up by 12:35 p.m., said PG&E spokeswoman Lisa Randle. The outage was caused by a downed line, she said. The specific cause of the downed line is unknown.

An estimated 2,755 customers in the Lime Kiln Road area were without power Tuesday from 11:54 a.m. until 12:15 p.m. The cause of this outage was “an equipment failure in the substation itself,” Randle said.

She said the two outages in southern Nevada County were unrelated.

Some residents may have experienced what seemed to be multiple outages Tuesday when workers were restoring power, but it was all part of the same outage, Randle said.
