SCE CONDUCTS MAINTENANCE POWER OUTAGES ON MARCH 14TH AND 15TH AFFECTING 313 CUSTOMERS
DUARTE, CA, MARCH 13, 2017 – On the dates of March 14th and 15th,, a total of 278 residential customers, 35 business, and 2 traffic signals will be involved in a 9 hour maintenance outage conducted by Southern California Edison. This scheduled maintenance will begin on Tuesday, March 14th at 8:00 pm and end at 4:30 am on Wednesday, March 15th.
SCE notified city officials and mailed notices to every affected household of the intended shutdown. Edison describes boundaries for the planned outage to include Central Avenue on the south side and west of Crestfield Avenue. This outage will allow SCE to make needed upgrades and repairs to increase their reliability.
To prepare for the planned outage, SCE advises customers to shut off or disconnect all sensitive electronic equipment, such as computers and fax machines, before the outage begins. Notify security and/or phone companies that provide businesses with service as the outage will affect alarm systems and may affect private phone systems. Customers should make sure that they could override or manually operate their security gates or garage doors. Plan to minimize the opening of refrigerator and freezer doors during the outage to maintain temperature. If customers plan to operate an emergency generator, notify SCE before the outage so SCE can protect its employees from possible electrical back feed. To notify SCE of a generator, call 1-(800) 990-7788.
