Generator Grant Program

The Generator Grant Program provides a no-cost, portable power station (backup battery) to eligible customers who live in areas with elevated wildfire threat and who have experienced a previous Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event. The program also includes customer education and guidance on the use of a power station unit.
