Public Safety Power Shut-Offs in Effect North of Goleta

Post Date:09/07/2019 7:20 PM

The City of Goleta has been notified that due to weather conditions, SCE has shut off power this evening in the Gaviota area of Santa Barbara County. This includes:

  • Unincorporated area from Gaviota to Point Conception
  • Unincorporated areas west of Goleta

At this time, SCE cannot provide an estimate of restoration time. Power will be restored as conditions improve, crews conduct inspections, and determine it is safe to re-energize lines.

The following areas of Santa Barbara continue to be monitored for a potential Public Safety Power Shut-Off (PSPS):

  • Unincorporated areas near Gaviota
  • Unincorporated areas near Gaviota
  • Unincorporated areas near Las Flores Canyon

SCE is deploying a Community Outreach Vehicle equipped with backup power so that customers can charge their personal mobile devices and continue to receive updates about the outage. Water and snacks will also be available to customers. The vehicle will be stationed at Girsh Park located at 7050 Phelps Road in Goleta, and will be open from 9:00 p.m. to midnight tonight (September 7), and 7:00 a.m. to midnight tomorrow (if outage continues).

There are currently no areas within Goleta City limits that are being monitored for a PSPS. However, the shut-off could have residual impacts and is a good reminder to be prepared should a PSPS occur within City limits.
