A faulty switch is being blamed for a power outage that left some PG&E customers in the Templeton area without power for a short time Monday.

PG&E says the outage started around 2:15 p.m. and initially impacted about 2,400 customers.

“Our responding crew quickly found a faulty switch and re-routed service, restoring all impacted customers within six minutes,” a PG&E spokesperson said in an email to KSBY News.

Trader Joes at 1111 Rossi Rd. was also without power Monday afternoon, although it was not immediately known if it was part of the same outage.

Employees there said the lights came back on shortly before 3 p.m. after the power had gone out 30 to 45 minutes earlier.
