While most of the outages were centered in Royalton, and other towns in Windsor County, other communities in Rutland, Windham, and Orange County also lost power for a time.
Royalton Community Radio said it was knocked off the air due to the power interruption.
The cause of the outages wasn't immediately clear, but wind gusts over 40 MPH were reported in the area.
There's no estimate on when all power will be restored.
