  • CHANGE TO POSTING POLICY: Out of consideration for the privacy of impacted customers we are no longer posting address information for minor planned outages.  The affected customers, as always, will be notified directly.    
  • FREE MAGNET--have a handy list of important contact numbers and weblinks available whenever you need us.  Send an email with your name and snail mail address or call (650) 329-2479 to request one.  
  • Midtown--a project is underway to upgrade the Midtown area electric equipment, including moving underground vaults to above-ground pads. The upgrade will increase the capacity and improve the reliability of City of Palo Alto's electric system which will mean better service to more customers. As part of this project, some customers will experience planned power shut-downs lasting up to 8 hours on a couple of days to allow workers to connect up new equipment safely.  Those customers will get direct advance notice of the planned outages.
