Approximately 1,700 Beverly Hills residents in the northeast portion of the city lost power during an outage that began at 10:30 p.m. on Nov. 5 and ended at 1:22 a.m. on Nov. 6, said Southern California Edison spokesman David Song.
He added that the outage was caused by an equipment failure, and that Edison workers had to inspect portions of the impacted circuit that lie in a high-fire area before beginning repairs.
“We recognize the frustration of our customers due to the recent outages going back to September, and we are taking steps to improve the long-term reliability of the community,” Song said.
In a Twitter post shortly after the outage began, Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse reiterated her frustration with Edison for the repeated outages and their effects on community members.
“[Edison], can you get through at least two weeks before placing our city in darkness?” Bosse stated. “I’m outraged. We all are.”
