PG&E PSPS not expected to impact service availability

Due to the Public Safety Power Shutoff, campus has moved power entirely to its local co-generation plant. Because of this, campus buildings, including MLK, are closed. The OCF Lab has been and will be closed throughout the duration of the outage. We do not know yet when we will reopen.

Other OCF services, including webhosting and mail, are expected to be available throughout the PSPS as we hope to have co-generation power available. We have disabled our high performance computing cluster and turned off non-essential servers to reduce power consumption.

We will post any further updates here.

Update 10/28 11:30pm: The OCF Lab will reopen tomorrow Tuesday Oct 29 with our regular hours from 9am-8pm.
