A broken insulator caused a power outage throughout the village of Granville that lasted more than two hours Monday afternoon.
Clay Ellis, manager of corporate communications at NYSEG, said a crew was working in the Granville substation when an insulator broke. That caused a transformer bank to be interrupted, and the interruption was on two circuits.
Almost 1200 customers were affected by the outage, which lasted for about 2 hours and 25 minutes from 11:10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
