There are times when we may need to interrupt the power supply so crews can safely carry out essential upgrades or planned maintenance to the electricity network.  If you rely on medical equipment, we encourage you to register as a life support customer.

COVID-19 Update for life support customers 

We are regularly reviewing and updating our operational practices in response to this pandemic, however customers remain at the heart of our business. We are committed to working with you, and for you, to get through this difficult time. We understand that many of our life support customers will have changing needs and situations and may be concerned about losing power during the pandemic.

Your safety is a priority for us. If you have any questions regarding the electricity supply to your life support equipment please contact us on 13 13 65 during office hours. If an unplanned power outage results in a life-threatening situation, call 000 and request an ambulance immediately.
