HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Huntsville Utilities says power has been restored for a majority of the customers impacted by an overnight outage. The utility company says anyone still experiencing an outage should call 256-53-LIGHT (256-535-4448).
A release from the utility company says a breaker in the substation serving the area opened at approximately 7:14 Thursday evening. That breaker caused the loss of service for roughly 1300 customers.
Crews began searching for the cause of the outage and isolated some damaged equipment near the intersection of Jordan Lane and Sparkman Drive. That didn’t correct the issue, though, so crews worked through the night to determine the real problem.
They determined the issue inside the substation was the problem and that restored power to all customers.
The utility company said crews remained onsite to inspect, make repairs and perform maintenance at the substation.
