May 31, 2012|By Andrea F. Siegel, The Baltimore Sun

Thousands of BGE customers in Annapolis lost electricity late Thursday morning while the utility company installed new equipment at a substation serving the area, but power was restored in about two hours.

"We had to take 5,000 customers out service," said Rachael Lighty, a BGE spokeswoman. "They should have all been restored to service by about 1:20 (p.m.) today."

BGE reported around noon that 3,240 customers were without power in Anne Arundel County, nearly all in the Annapolis area, including downtown. BGE's online map showed those outages in the area south of Route 50 and east of Route 2. The equipment was installed to boost service reliability, Lighty said.
