RELATED STORIES:What will the Bay Area weather be like for the eclipse?
The Bay Area will see a reduction of the sun's power by 75-percent during the eclipse.
To make up for that brief but significant absence of full solar energy, PG&E has a few backup plans in place, which include increasing hydroelectric power sources.
"With the grid, we are able to use hydro power, natural gas, and other sources to make sure the energy is there for customers," said Matt Nauman with PG&E.
PG&E is also working closely with the state's independent system operator to find replacement sources.
