The state of California is taking unprecedented measures to protect all California residents and businesses from the risk of wildfire. Pacific Gas & Electric’s (PG&E) planned power outages to reduce the risk of wildfire may have broader implications on the electric grid. While Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) does not expect to have planned power shutdowns at this time, it uses PG&E’s transmission system and could potentially be impacted.
Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) is warning customers of a phone scam. The municipally owned utility has received reports that scammers are impersonating its employees and demanding immediate payment from customers. In addition, AMP received a report of a caller falsely claiming to be a PG&E employee who was collecting payments for AMP.

Alameda police officers arrested an Alameda resident after he allegedly tried blocking the installation of Alameda Municipal Power’s (AMP) new smart meters at an apartment building Thursday, March 29.
Alameda resident Christopher Rabe was arrested at 10:30 a.m., according to Alameda Police Department (APD) reports. The incident took place at the apartment building on the 2200 block of Pacific Avenue where Rabe, 39, is a tenant.
As many Alamedans know, Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) has been implementing its Smart Meter program in residential neighborhoods. What most Alamedans do not know, however, is the hidden potential for danger these radio-frequency (RF) radiation-emitting devices have. There is current evidence of a link between cancer and RF radiation. This includes a $25 million study by the federal government’s National Toxicology Program that proves the link.
Every October, Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) joins with more than 2,000 other community-owned electric utilities in the U.S. to honor the contributions of public power. This year’s celebration of Public Power Week (Oct. 1 to 7) resonates for me because I recently joined AMP as general manager during the utility’s 130th year of providing electric service to Alamedans. This is a pivotal time for AMP.
The Power Up for Learning program, a joint effort between local nonprofit Alameda Education Foundation (AEF) and Alameda Municipal Power (AMP), provides students in Alameda’s schools access to technology curriculum focused on robotics based at Wood Middle School.
