More than 2,700 customers were without power in the Avila Valley area Friday afternoon, because of what PG&E called an “equipment issue.”
According to the utility company’s outage map, 2,706 customers south of San Luis Obispo — roughly the entirety of Avila Valley, Avila Beach and part of Shell Beach — were without electricity starting at noon.
Power was restored to roughly half of the customers by 2:30 p.m., and fully by 4:30 p.m.
PG&E said its initial inspection indicated that “an equipment issue” prompted the outage.
