FEWER than 19 properties remain without power in Quarry Hill.
A Powercor spokesperson said inspectors have been visiting homes on Thursday to reconnect power to those properties.
"Customers will need to be home before our inspectors are able to switch their power back on," a spokesperson said.
"If customers have any questions, they can contact us on 13 24 12."
The spokesperson said Powercor's systems were able to contain blackout on Wednesday.
"We have many different protection devices incorporated into our network," a spokesperson said. "These include circuit breakers, auto circuit reclosers and fuses.
"Protection devices will have operated yesterday to isolate the fault to the impacted area."
A NUMBER of customers in Quarry Hill remain without power after a power surge broke the system on Wednesday.
More than 130 Powercor customers spent Wednesday in the dark after an issue with a neutral circuit conductor caused blackouts and fires.
"We have restored power to the majority of customers and licensed electrical inspectors will be on site today to continue progressively checking and reconnecting properties," a Powercor spokesperson said.
"We understand how frustrating and inconvenient it is to be without power for so long and we thank customers for their patience during this work.
"Safety is always our first priority and we need to make sure each property is safe before we can reconnect them to the network.
"We'd encourage impacted customers to visit our website or phone us on 13 24 12 to find out more information about compensation and how to make claims."
The Queens Arms Hotel had its power restored about 6pm on Wednesday, but owner Callum Francis said the business was still counting the costs of the blackout.
"We were closed the whole day," Mr Francis said. "We've definitely lost thousands of dollars in revenue, thousands in food we had to throw out, and thousands in the tradies we had in yesterday."
Mr Francis said Powercor had provided him with a compensation form. He said he was expecting to receive a significant amount of money back.
"They gave us a claim sheet with all of the information there for things like lost food, labour and other bills involved," he said. "They were pretty good about it and they didn't shy away from what happened.
"In the interim, we'll have to cover ourselves but we're hopeful that the claim process will be quick.
"I think we should be compensated in full, but I'm only guessing on that."
Mr Francis said a number the Queens Arms Hotel's fridges, lights and other appliances were damaged in the power surge.
He said the pub should be back up and running for Thursday's lunch service.
