Overhead line work has been carried out following a series of short, regular power cuts which plagued a village for weeks.
More than 1,300 people in and around the village of Hollesley, near Woodbridge, had faced power cuts several times a week since December 23.
The cuts took place at around the same time every day, between 4pm and 5pm, with many not lasting more than a minute.
The cuts left villagers frustrated, as it caused timers and clocks reset.
Power surges had also caused problems to broadband equipment and damaged electrical goods.

A spokesman for UK Power Networks said: “As a result of our monitoring in the Hollesley area we carried out some work on overhead lines and are continuing to monitor the network.”
