All the lights are back on. Here’s a breakdown of how long it took for PG&E to end shutdown.

After three days without power, the lights back on across Northern California. Here is the updated list of where Pacific Gas and Electric Co. says it has restored electrical service as 7 p.m. Saturday.

The utility company reported it has restored power to 738,000 customers following a deliberate blackout that started Wednesday.

Power remained out in some mountainous portions of Amador, Calaveras, Nevada, Plumas and Sierra, as well as in Santa Cruz County, through most of Saturday. By 7 p.m., the handful of residents in Tehama, Yuba and El Dorado were reconnected to the grid, the utility said.

Officials say they have 6,300 workers and 44 helicopters conducting line inspections and doing repairs.
