Hundreds were left without power near Maidstone earlier today.
UK Power Networks (UKPN) has apologised after a faulty underground cable caused a power cut in 375 homes, in the Fauchons Close area of Bearsted, at around 1.15pm.
The power was up and running again by 2pm.
A spokeswoman for the company said: "Our engineers worked as quickly as possible to restore power supplies to customers. A fault on an underground cable interrupted supplies to 375 customers at 1.13pm. All supplies were restored by 2.02pm. We understand how difficult it is being without electricity and apologise for any inconvenience caused."
