More than 8,000 people in Scotia, Glenville, Schenectady and Rotterdam lost power during Monday’s storm.
Power went out for about 8,500 National Grid customers in downtown Schenectady heading west toward Campbell Road in Rotterdam and in the village of Scotia spanning northwest toward Rotterdam Junction, utility spokesman Steve Brady said.
The outage started at about 5:20 p.m. and power was fully restored by about 7:15 p.m., he said.
The outage was due to a lockout of a sub-transmission line that feeds substations in Scotia and on Weaver Street in Rotterdam, Brady said. The outage was weather related, though the exact cause was unclear, he said.
