Troubleshooters were out along Genoa Lakes Drive working to repair the damage.

The outage was first reported at 2:36 a.m. and coincided with a larger outage in eastern Carson City affecting more than 400 customers.

The Carson outage was fixed, but the company has delayed restoration to the Genoa outage twice.

This is the second outage affecting Carson Valley in three days. On Friday evening, 225 NV Energy customers were affected by an outage that lasted more than four hours.

NVEnergy spokeswoman Kristen Saibini said Friday’s outage was caused by tree trimmers.
