DUARTE, CA, January 10, 2018 – On the days of January 15 and 16, a total of 103 residential customers and 5 businesses will be involved in a series of two planned outages conducted by Southern California Edison. On Monday, January 15th, the outage will last approximately 8.5 hours between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm. and on Tuesday, January 16th for another five hours between 1:00 am and 6:00 am.
SCE notified city officials and mailed notices to every affected household and business of the intended shutdowns. The two areas for the planned outage include the south side of Fish Canyon to East of Duarte Rd. affecting 103 residential and 1 business customers on the 15th, and west of Santo Domingo Ave. north to the south side of Business Center Drive involving 4 business customers on the 16th. Both outages will allow Edison to upgrade aging infrastructure, make needed improvements and complete other miscellaneous repairs.
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.
