PG&E offering hotel discounts for disabled, older-adult customers due to prolonged outages

North Lakeport, California blanketed with a fresh coat of snow during wintry weather in Lake County, California. February, 23, 2023. 

The latest winter storm that swept in with frigid air earlier this week, continues to cause problems for Bay Area residents, particularly with prolonged power outages. Pacific Gas and Electric announced late Thursday, they are offering hotel discounts for some Northern and Central California customers, who are experiencing extended outages. 

The utility's North Bay Division serves Marin and Napa counties. They have alerted residents to expect a significant winter storm overnight through Saturday.

"The weather is expected to cause more sustained outages due to low and mid-elevation snowfall, breezy to gusty winds, and isolated thunderstorms," PG&E said in a statement. 

Snow is expected to accumulate in uncommon areas, such as sea level locations along the North Coast, Lake County, and the East Bay hills, the utility said. 

PG&E said they are partnering with California Foundation for Independent Living Centers to offer support for its older adult customers and those with disabilities through the Disability Disaster Access and Resources Program.
