JULIAN, Calif. (KGTV) -- More than 1,600 people will be without power in Julian Wednesday as San Diego Gas and Electric crews work to replace equipment.

The power company said power will be turned off from noon to 5 p.m. to accommodate the work.

“To minimize impact on schools, the planned outage is occurring on a day when schools in the area are scheduled to get out early,” the company said.

The company also warned that the work may take longer than expected should any weather conditions or unforeseen events unfold.

SDG&E says customers in the area should unplug all sensitive electrical equipment to prepare. Anyone with medical devices that depend on electricity are asked to also contact the company’s Planned Outage Coordinator to make necessary arrangements.
