More than 600 homes in villages south of Norwich were affected by a power cut on Sunday.
UK Power Networks, which became aware of the problem at 11.21am, sent engineers to the area, who believe that a faulty section of overhead cables is the cause of the problems.
Initially 619 properties were affected, but engineers were able to return power to some homes remotely.
However, some who had electricity restored, many of which are in villages sandwiched between the A140 at Tasburgh and A146 at Loddon, then lost power again.
However, UK Power Networks issued an update, at just before 8.30pm, saying the power had been restored.
Earlier on Sunday, a grounded electricity line cut power to 183 homes in north west Norfolk, but this issue was resolved at 10.34am.
