PG&E works to restore Richmond District outage

Pacific Gas and Electric crews are working to restore power to 1,600 customers in San Francisco’s Richmond District who are still without power from an outage that started earlier today, a spokeswoman said.

The outage near the corner of California and 16th streets started around 9:30 a.m. and affected about 4,600 PG&E customers. The outage was caused by an equipment failure, according to preliminary investigation, according to Jacqueline Ratto, a PG&E spokeswoman.

Ratto said:

“We have been able to restore power to more than 3,000 customers since the start of the incident.”

It’s not yet known when the remaining PG&E customers’ power will be restored.
