Power Outages

Power Outages



While not common, power outages can occur during inclement weather, such as heavy rain or high winds. SDG&E may also occasionally shut off the power directly during storms if a downed line is likely, to avoid the chance of fire.


Luckily, if you’re prepared, the occasional outage is only a minor inconvenience. Possessing (and knowing how to operate) a backup generator to provide power for your laptops, phones, and other electronic devices is a surefire way to stay safe and connected if the power is out. Be sure to also plan for alternate cold storage for food, drinks, medications, and other refrigerated items.

Note: Your front gate must have a backup battery power source to comply with local fire codes, allowing the gate to open if power is lost. Gates all have a manual opening system as well, which you can find in your operator’s manual.
