BUSINESSES and homes across Mount Gambier had a dark start to the day yesterday with yet another power outage.
Over 1600 customers struggled through the morning, using candles and torches to open their businesses and prepare themselves for the day ahead.
SA Power Networks spokesperson Paul Roberts said the outage was caused by a damaged insulator that was quickly replaced once authorities were notified.
“The outage occurred just after 7am with power coming back on at 8.30am,” he said.
