Pacific Power release – CRESCENT CITY, Calif. (SEPTEMBER 11, 2023) —Pacific Power safely re-energized the transmission lines serving Crescent City and Del Norte County, and all customers have been returned to electric grid service on Sunday. In coordination with Fire Incident Management Teams and Del Norte County Emergency Operations Center, Pacific Power crews made repairs caused by the Smith River Complex Fire, which burned for weeks near the company’s electrical system infrastructure. Around 13,000 customers were supplied power through large substation generators that were mobilized into the area after Pacific Power de-energized transmission lines impacted by the fire. As of yesterday, those generators were taken off-line and crews switched substations back to normal transmission service. If power is still off or if you have a power-related concern, please call us at 1-877-508-5088 or visit pacificpower.net/outage
