16,000 Xcel customers in the St. Paul area were without power Sunday night.
Xcel spokesman Tom Hoen told the Pioneer press a substation went down before 8 p.m. and that crews were working to restore power.
He said crews were hopeful the outage would not last long.
Xcel initially put the number without power at 20,000. As of 9 p.m. all power was restored.
It's the third power outage in the area in five days.
