Almost 11,000 National Grid customers in Stoughton lost power Saturday afternoon, as a result of a breaker that opened at a National Grid substation on Sumner St. in Stoughton, according to Charlotte McCormack, a spokesperson for National Grid.
While the open breaker triggered the outage, the reason the breaker opened is unknown at this time, McCormack said.
A little more than 90 percent of the 12,000 National Grid customers in town lost their power, but power has been fully restored in all areas of Stoughton as of 4:54 p.m. on March 31, McCormack said.
While the substation is on Sumner St., much of nearby Park St. and Turnpike St. did not lose power, according to a National Grid outage map. However, essentially the rest of the town did lose power for a couple of hours.
The Sumner St. substation also serves a small amount of customers in North Easton, McCormack said. There were reports of outages in North Easton as well, but all power has since been restored.
