Dear LBNL Colleagues,
PG&E has notified Berkeley Lab that it has changed their estimate of when it will shut off power to the Berkeley Lab main hill site and to the Joint Genome Institute (JGI) in Walnut Creek as part of the public safety power shutdown (PSPS). The current estimated time for power shutoff at both sites is 7 p.m., today, Oct. 26.
In addition, all buildings and systems at the main site and at JGI will be in a safe and stable condition and ready for power loss by 4 p.m. today. Berkeley Lab’s main hill site and the JGI remain closed to all except those individuals on the emergency-essential personnel access list.
Here are some Frequently Asked Questions that cover general closure information, business systems, user facilities, transportation, and supervisor information, among other topics.
