Work Planned by SCE
Southern California Edison will be performing maintenance on the electrical system in the area. In order to perform this work safely, SCE must temporarily turn off power. This outage will allow the modernization of the grid by making needed upgrades and repairs to increase reliability. Power outages may cause some inconvenience and therefore attempts are made for outages to be isolated down to the smallest area possible and the work completed safely and quickly.
The work will start on Oct. 30 at 8 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. Sixty-three residential customers will be affected and four commercial customers will be affected. No Traffic Control meters will be affected.
The outage boundary is 1510 W. Verdugo Blvd.
Note that the power may be off for the whole period or may be turned off more than once. This planned outage may not begin exactly at the stated start time, and some conditions may cause this planned outage to be postponed. The times noted are SCE’s best estimate and circumstances may affect both the start time and the completion time indicated above.  
Questions can be directed to (800) 611-1911.
