Their latest update about 3.30pm revealed power had been restored to the "majority" of customers affected by the outage. But works were still being undertaken to restore power to the Dockyard road area.
Earlier on Monday the company said: "The fault has been isolated and works are ongoing to restore power as soon and as safely as possible. We apologise for the inconvenience caused to those customers."
The Rock was affected by two major power outages last month. Both occurred within one week of each other.
