Planned interruptions

We’re continually working to maintain the electricity network and improve the way we supply your power. From time to time, we need to interrupt the power supply to safely carry out essential maintenance and upgrade work. We aim to minimise disruption by giving you as much information as possible about the work. However, sometimes our schedule may change in the event of unforeseen circumstances or weather. See more information below.

Important information

  • Work scheduled for a planned power interruption can be cancelled due to weather or other circumstances.
  • To report a loss of supply that is not on this list, call 13 13 88.
  • Some types of work that require us to interrupt the power supply are not included in this list, such as meter upgrades and when we replace overhead service connections to homes and businesses from the network.
  • Our crews sometimes need to make emergency repairs on the network. Where possible, we notify customers as soon as we can. These jobs are not shown here.
  • Crews are sometimes able to progressively restore power during scheduled works. Please refer to the restoration time written on your notification card for the expected time your power will be restored.
  • We give customers at least four days notice so they can plan for a temporary interruption to their power supply.
  • The 'customer numbers' column shows the number of homes and businesses usually supplied by the part of the network we are working on. Where possible, we minimise disruption by supplying power to customers from unaffected parts of the local network. These activities are not reflected in the customer numbers.
