PG&E PREPARES FOR POTENTIAL HEAVY EL NIÑO RAIN STORMS WITH THE HELP OF NEW TECHNOLOGY
It's been nearly two decades since El Niño storms hit PG&E's Northern and Central California service area — and a lot has changed since then. The utility has new technology that wasn't around the last time El Niño drenched the state in the winter of 1997-98. PG&E's in-house meteorologists are closely monitoring the changing weather. With storm outage prediction models, smart grid technology and on-the-ground support, PG&E is better able to respond to customer outages more safely and quickly than ever before.
