It was lights out for nearly 2,000 Green Mountain Power customers in Chittenden County Tuesday.
The utility says around 6:30 p.m. there was a problem with a GMP substation in Essex Junction. About 900 customers lost power in the Sand Hill Road area of Essex -- and another 800 were in the dark in Williston.
Crews were able to reroute the power before the repairs began. The outage lasted about 2 hours.
