More than 400 homes and businesses in Haverhill have had their power restored after a lorry clipped an overhead cable.
UK Power Networks took the decision to shut off power in the CB9 area of the town shortly after 9.30am, following reports of a grounded overhead line.
The network operator said it shut the power in the interest of public safety.
Power was restored for most properties by 11.20am.
A spokeswoman for UK Power Networks said: "Our engineers were quickly on site in Mount Road, Haverhill after Suffolk Police reported a lorry had brought down an overhead power cable.
