According to PG&E (California's largest power company) "for public safety, it may be necessary for us to turn off electricity when gusty winds and dry conditions, combined with a heightened fire risk, are forecasted. This is called a 'Public Safety Power Shutoff' or 'PSPS'" and they have done that several times in California over the last couple of years. Today PG&E plans to turn off power for nearly 800,000 customers, and the power may stay off for as long as five days.
