Ausgrid has constructed a new electricity substation to meet the needs of Empire Bay and the peninsula area. The new substation is located at 276-394 Empire Bay Drive in Empire Bay, west of the Liberty Service Station. Access to the substation is via Poole Close.
The electrical network in the Empire Bay area has been supplied through a 11,000 Volt power line system from zone substations at Woy Woy and Avoca. A new substation has been constructed at Empire Bay to meet the community's increasing electricity needs and provide a reliable power supply to Empire Bay, Saratoga, Bensville, Davistown, Kincumber South, Killcare Heights, Hardys Bay and Daleys Point.
The Empire Bay substation is due to enter service in mid 2013.
