California’s electric grid contains thousands of miles of transmission lines and tens of thousands of miles of distribution lines. Transmission lines are the “highway” on which the electricity we use moves. Distribution lines are like the city streets that bring the electricity to your meter. They can be susceptible to outages for a variety of reasons.
Remember safety first! Stay far away from a downed powerline and call 911 immediately!
