What is the difference between "Restored: manually" and "Restored: Smart Grid"?

Try the steps below to resolve your issue.

Smart Grid restores occur when the technology of the Smart Grid allows us to restore your power without an EPB crew having to drive out and fix any problems near your home. A manual restore is when we drive out and make repairs to the system in order to restore power.
