More than 2,000 homes were left without power for up to two hours in Wokingham last night.
At around 7.30pm 2,380 Southern Electric customers lost power because of a fault with the company's overhead power network.
The company re-routed the supply and restored power in stages with the last customer receiving electricity by 9.30pm.
A spokesman for Southern Electric said: "Permanent repairs are taking place today. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."
