The outage, which began at 1:14 p.m. still left 1,800 customers in the Choccolocco area without power as of 2:18 p.m.
Spokeswoman Alyson Tucker said Alabama Power expects electricity to be restored by 3 p.m.
The outage, she said, is due to problems with transmission lines, which carry power from plants to distribution lines that connect to homes and businesses. Tucker said it often takes longer to determine a cause for transmission-related outages because of increased safety precautions.
In addition to the Choccolocco area, the outage affected DeArmanville, the Highland Avenue area and the area near Lee Brass on Golden Springs Road.
