Portable Battery Program

Pacific Gas and Electric’s (PG&E) Portable Battery Program provides backup batteries to lessen the impact of Public Safety Power Shutoff events on customers who rely on medical devices. Community Resource Project partnered with PG&E to reach Yuba County residents who are on medical baseline, and live in High Wildfire Threat Districts, or areas prone to wildfire and or Public Safety Power Shutoff events. CRP works with predetermined customers in Yuba County to assess their emergency preparedness and medical device information to match them with the best battery available for their needs. When a customer cannot be assisted with a battery, CRP works with FREED, a local Independent Living Center, to provide alternative options. 

If you are an eligible Yuba County resident who needs to reach our staff, you can call us at 1-833-232-3355. You can also call PG&E to check if you are eligible for this program.
