Blackout: Power fully restored, fire at Yong Peng intake station blamed

PETALING JAYA: Power has been restored to all areas affected by the nationwide blackout on Wednesday (July 27), says Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB).

It said in a statement on its official Facebook account that power was restored to all affected regions by 3.02pm.

"The power supply to most areas was restored in stages 20 minutes after the disruption occurred due to the continuous work of the TNB technical teams," it said in a statement.

TNB added that the source of the disruption that began at 12.39pm was traced to a fault at Pencawang Masuk Utama (PMU) Yong Peng North in Yong Peng, Johor.

In an earlier statement on Facebook, TNB had said that Petaling Jaya, Cheras, Bangi, Bayan Lepas, Seberang Jaya, Panchor and Bandar Indera Mahkota were among the areas hit by the power outage
