Thousands of homes in Earley lost power this afternoon, with hundreds still waiting for a return of supply.
Around 3,800 properties lost their electricity supply at 2pm due to a technical fault in the Earley area.
The supplier estimates that 300 properties remain without power.
A Southern Electric spokesman said: "Engineers have been on site since 2pm and are trying to establish the location of the fault.
"We are doing everything we can to get customers back on and many have been re-routed with power from different parts of the network. Customers will notice power flickering for a couple of seconds during the re-routing process.
"We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this has caused."
