ElectraNet advises that a planned outage will take place on Sunday, 14 March, which will temporarily interrupt electricity supply to townships on the Yorke Peninsula.

The outage will occur from 3am to 11am Australian Central Daylight Time (local time) and affect towns south of Ardrossan, across mid to lower Yorke Peninsula (see below map).

During this time, ElectraNet will undertake essential maintenance works on the 132,000 volt transmission lines between the Hummocks, Ardrossan West and Dalrymple substations.

For the work to be completed safely, the transmission line must be switched off. Affected businesses and households will receive written notification of the temporary outage from SA Power Networks. They recommend customers register for free SMS/email notification on their website or at bit.ly/SMSupdates

The battery at Dalrymple will be used during the outage and supply about 4,500 customers in the Dalrymple service area, which means the length of the outage experienced by these customers is likely to be less.

ElectraNet apologises for any inconvenience caused by the need to interrupt supply while this essential work is undertaken.
