Transmission lines in the Lower Eyre Peninsula

6:20 PM

High-voltage power supply has now been restored to the Lower Eyre Peninsula, after a lightning strike earlier this afternoon caused an interruption to supply.

ElectraNet’s transmission network supplies bulk high-voltage power to SA Power Networks’ distribution network.

SA Power Networks will now progressively restore power to homes and businesses, as it is safe to do so.

Further information about distribution outages is available from SA Power Networks through the ‘Current Interruptions’ section of their website,, or by calling 13 13 66.
