Met-Ed schedules brief power outage to repair substation
Outage expected to last 30 to 60 minutes while repairs made to substation
Some Met-Ed customers in east Reading and Mount Penn spent part of their election night in the dark.
The utility notified its customers of a planned outage via Twitter:
"Reading customers: To make repairs to a substation, we must take it out of power at 10 pm for 30-60 mins. We apologize for the inconvenience."
About 3,000 homes and businesses were to be affected by the outage, which a Met-Ed spokeswoman said was expected to last about 30 minutes.
