Both PG&E and SCE are sending notifications to Kern County residents that there’s a higher potential for power shut-off throughout the entire Kern County area (and much of the State of California) for the next several days. Since this potential public safety power shutoff could effect a large portion of Kern County, we’re asking all residents to be prepared.
