During lockdown, we’re focused on providing a safe and reliable energy supply, minimising disruption from power interruptions, and ensuring the health and wellbeing of our people and the community.
We know having a power or gas interruption is inconvenient, especially during lockdown, however some maintenance to the network must go ahead to ensure our energy supply is safe, and avoid serious faults that could cause longer outages in the future.
We’re reviewing our program of work each day, and we’ll only be going ahead with work that’s essential such as:
repairing damaged network that poses a serious safety or reliability risk
network connections that are critical to customers, government or local business
network checks and monitoring for hospitals and medical centres and ensuring any maintenance or repairs at these sites receive priority service
ensuring safety for customers who require life support equipment.
If we need to turn the power off, we’ll work as quickly and safely as possible to get it back on, to minimise disruption while you’re at home.
In some cases, our crews will need to access residential or business premises to complete essential works. We will always follow the current health and safety advice during our visit and we ask the community to help by social distancing and wearing a mask.
If you’ve received a notification from us about a power interruption coming up at your home or business, we’ll send you an SMS the day before to let you know what’s happening. We send SMS updates to all electricity or gas account holders that have their mobile number listed with their energy retailer.
During lockdown, our face to face customer service team, our office, Greenway depot and worksites are closed to all external visitors.
Our contact centre continues to operate 24 hours a day and our crews are prepared to respond to network faults and emergencies. Non-urgent enquiries can be submitted to us online, by calling 132386 or via social media on Evoenergy’s Facebook page Evoenergy ACT and Twitter at Evoenergy ACT.
Network safety training including Electrical Safety Rules and Service & Installation Rules training is temporarily cancelled and we will provide an update on the training page soon.
You can always check our outages map and our contact centre continues to operate 24hrs a day and our crews are prepared to respond to network faults and emergencies.
It is essential our crews stay safe to keep the power on, so we ask the community to help by ensuring you follow social distancing and wear a mask.
All planned work is assessed daily and we are focused on balancing the need to maintain a safe and reliable network, and minimising disruption and inconvenience to customers. Thank you for your support and patience as our team work hard to continue to support the community.
We will post work that is proceeding or cancelled every day on Evoenergy’s Facebook page Evoenergy ACT and Twitter at Evoenergy ACT. You can check our planned outages schedule on our outages map but please be aware that this information could change.
