Pacific Power will turn off electricity to an area west of Stanfield just after midnight Thursday, July 2. It will be restored at 1 a.m., July 2. The company will be replacing transmission wire to enhance local electrical system reliability for customers, Pacific Power said in a press release today.
The planned outage will affect about 500 customers, generally along Stanfield Meadows Road, Butter Creek Road, South First Street and Feedville Road. Another area, just west of the first area will also be affected, along Quick Road, West Orchard Road and Minnehaha Road. Customers in the area are being notified individually about the outage. Streetlights will not be affected.
"It might be a good idea to use an alarm clock that doesn't plug into the wall, such as a battery-operated clock or a cell phone alarm, if you have to get up early in the morning," said Bill Clemens, regional community manager. "We really appreciate the patience of our customers when planned outages such as this are needed. We're doing this work now to make sure that safe, reliable power is available to everyone in the community."
In order to complete the work, a second planned outage will also be required within the next few weeks. Pacific Power will again notify customers well in advance of that outage.
If customers have questions about the planned outage, they can call Pacific Power toll free at 888-221-7070. Any outages during that time outside the affected area should continue to be reported to Pacific Power at 877-548-3768.
