Napa County will open five centers Wednesday for residents who need to charge medical and electronic devices.
The county said Tuesday that three-quarters of Napa County could be affected by a Pacific Gas and Electric Company power shutoff intended to mitigate wildfire risk. The utility will not turn power back on until it’s conducted safety inspections, which are not expected to begin until Thursday afternoon, the county said in a press release Tuesday evening. It could take up to five days to restore power to all customers.
In addition to the Napa County centers open below, PG&E has opened community centers for residents in Napa (Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, 1001 Fairgrounds Drive, Vallejo) and Calistoga (Calistoga Fairgrounds, 1601 N. Oak St.). Those centers will serve up to 110 people with air conditioning, charging stations and water bottles.
Charging centers will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., from Wednesday until power is restored.
