UPDATED: Failed switch causes power outage to hit Lake Anne area of Reston

Updated at 12:05 a.m. on 4/24/2021 — A Dominion Energy spokesperson says that tonight’s power outage was the result of a failed switch.

As of 11 p.m., 27 customers were still without power as crews worked to make repairs. Restoration time was estimated to be between 2 and 5 a.m.

“Hopefully we will get it on sooner,” Dominion Energy spokesperson Peggy Fox told Reston Now.

Earlier: More than 1,000 people in Reston are currently without power, and it may be a few hours before electricity is restored.

According to Dominion Energy’s outage map, the outage has affected 1,392 customers between Baron Cameron Avenue to the north and Sunset Hills Road to the south.

The map says that a crew has been dispatched to the area, but the cause of the outage remains under investigation. As of 8:40 p.m., the utility company estimated that power would not be restored until 11 p.m. tonight (Friday) at the earliest, with the timeline potentially stretching until 2 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday).
