The Latest on a widespread power outage in San Francisco (all times local):
A utility company spokesman says a power substation that failed and caused a blackout in San Francisco had been set to be part of a $100 million upgrade.
Pacific Gas & Electric also said Friday that power had been restored to all but 3,000 of the almost 90,000 customers hit by the outage.
