Public Safety Power Shutoffs

A Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) is a safety procedure utilized by electric utilities to proactively turn off power when and where conditions present an increased wildfire risk. The practice of de-energization as a last resort for public safety is regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).

In partnership with fire weather experts, Liberty monitors real-time weather data and forecasts and regularly tests fuel moisture during the fire season. If it is determined that the forecasted conditions meet or exceed safety thresholds, Liberty will initiate a PSPS.


In the event that a PSPS is a possibility, Liberty will attempt to contact customers through calls, texts and emails, using contact information on file. Call 1-800-782-2506 or update your account's contact information by clicking the button below.
