  • What to do when the power is off

    The power has gone off in your area and it's not due to come on for at least a couple of hours, what now?

    We know that being without power can be inconvenient, however while our crews work as quickly and safely as they can to restore power, here's some tips and tricks on what you can do during an outage:

    Minimise opening fridge and freezer doors to keep your food cool.
    In summer, stay cool by closing curtains and windows to keep cooler air inside.
    In winter, keep warm by wearing layers and draw back curtains to allow sunlight to passively heat your home.
    Keep friends and loved ones entertained with board games, card games or jigsaw puzzles.

    And remember, if you see damaged electricity network infrastructure please report it to us on 13 10 93. Never treat powerlines or cables as safe or de-energised, even during a planned power interruption.
