Power outages in Newington and Redan

PARTS of Ballarat have been hit by power outages this morning affecting 195 customers in Redan and Newington.

A failing high voltage fuse caused the outage at around 9am, with services expected to be back online imminently.

A Powercor spokesperson said it was likely the high load from this week's heat wave would have contributed to the outage.

"It's a very sensitive network right now, I wouldn't be suprised if it was under considerable stress," they said.
