Electrical power has been fully restored to the Baie Verte Peninsula after portions of it experienced an outage Tuesday.
The outage left residents and businesses in Burlington, Smith’s harbour and Middle Arm without electricity early Tuesday evening.
An equipment problem was eventually identified at the substation in Burlington by crews from Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro, but some 450 customers had to spend the night without power.
A replacement piece was brought in from Bishop’s Falls as crews worked through the night and into Wednesday morning to repair the problem.
Power was fully restored just before noon Wednesday.
