Special Update Sept 8 Outage

September 8, 2011 Power Outage

On May 1, 2012, both the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) jointly issued a report related to the outage.  The report acknowledges that other entities – not SDG&E® – are responsible for the events that led to the outage within our service area. Since we did not have any control of the events on September 8, we won’t be paying claims filed with us for losses caused by the outage.  If you’re interested in reviewing the full report, visit http://www.ferc.gov/legal/staff-reports/04-27-2012-ferc-nerc-report.pdf.

SDG&E’s Claims Department has mailed letters to customers who had filed a claim letting them know we will not be paying on claims filed with us.
