LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — After more than two hours without power Duke Energy and Tipmont REMC said all of their customers have full restoration.
Broken equipment on transmission lines caused a substation failure on the city's eastside according to Duke.
The equipment belongs to Duke Energy, but it helps carry electricity to customers of Tipmont REMC as well.
A spokesman for Tipmont said more than 3,300 customers were without power, meanwhile a spokesman for Duke said about 750 customers were without power.
The problem was at the substation in Monitor, near Wyandotte Elementary.
Dan Rhodes, with Duke Energy, said the company had lineman at the substation to fix the broken equipment.
He said the current fix is temporary, but the permanent repair work shouldn't affect customers.
Tipmont customers had their power redirected from three other substations.
The power outages began around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday
