UPDATE: 1:35PM on Friday, September 17, 2021.
Due to improving weather conditions, NV Energy has canceled the PSOM watch for 4AM on Sunday, September 19 for TDPUD customers. Read more.


We have received notice that, due to extreme fire risk, NV Energy may de-energize transmission lines that deliver power to Truckee beginning at 4AM on September 19. The power outage, based on the length of the extreme wildfire danger period plus the time to visually inspect 100% of the electric system to safely restore power, could likely impact TDPUD’s entire customer base for 1-2 days.

Please visit the TDPUD website for more information and updates regarding this planned safety outage.


The Truckee Donner Public Utility District (TDPUD) is dependent on NV Energy for its electricity. In the event of extreme wildfire risk, NV Energy will de-energize transmission lines that deliver power to Truckee as part of their Public Safety Outage Management (PSOM). Even if the fire danger in Truckee seems low, we may experience a power outage event if the risk is high in Northern Nevada. Stay informed. Be prepared.
