The Pacific Gas & Electric Company is warning more than 800 customers in Solano County of a planned safety power shutoff (PSPS) event scheduled for early Monday morning.

Electrical service could be disrupted on Monday, September 20 from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., though PG&E could shorten or extend the power shutoff based on weather conditions.

The affected customers include residents and businesses in the following areas:

  • West of Pleasants Valley Road near Vaca Valley Parkway in rural Vacaville,

  • West of Interstate 80 near Cherry Glen Road in rural Vacaville, and

  • North and west of Rockville Hils Regional Park in Fairfield.

The PSPS warning comes amid a Red Flag Warning that will be in place starting Sunday evening until Tuesday evening. During this time, meteorologists say gusty wind coupled with low humidity and seasonably warm temperatures could ignite wildfires that will spread rapidly in affected areas.

Residents and businesses who are affected by the shutoff can visit PG&E’s Community Resource Center at S&S Supply (2700 Maxwell Way, Fairfield) on Monday and Tuesday from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.

The resource center will have outlets available for charging small medical devices, phones, tablets and other electronics; wireless Internet; seating; blankets; snacks; water; washrooms and ADA-accessible restrooms.
