POTTSTOWN, PA — Several hours after a temporary power outage plunged more than 2,000 people around the borough into darkness on Tuesday, PECO crews determined the cause of the problem.
The outage occurred around 10:40 a.m. and impacted 2,250 customers. Power to all but five customers was restored around 11 a.m.
Greg Smore, a PECO spokesperson, said an issue with a piece of equipment and a downed wire cause the outage, which lasted a little under an hour.
“It was not a malfunction and it was not weather related,” Smore said.
