The Manager of Corporate Communications for Fortis Alberta says about 2500 customers were affected by a power outage during the dinner hour on Thursday, January 16th.
Alana Antonelli says power went out for about 2500 customers in the Didsbury and Olds areas at 5:30pm.
She notes the cause was a failed piece of equipment - a terminator at the substation - likely due to the extremely cold temperatures.
The power was restored by approximately 6:45pm on Thursday, according to Antonelli.
