ElectraNet’s ground crews are working hard to restore power as safely and quickly as possible on the Eyre Peninsula, following loss of transmission supply yesterday caused by inclement weather.
It is anticipated that transmission supply will be restored late this afternoon.
Parts of the Peninsula are on back-up generation, as the turbine generators at Port Lincoln were switched on yesterday, following the network event.
“We apologise for this inconvenience and thank everyone in the community for their ongoing patience,” said ElectraNet’s Acting Executive Manager Network Services, Ralf Ricciardi.
We understand that it is extremely frustrating to be left without power and our ground crews are working hard to get supply back as soon as safely practicable, in the current weather conditions” Mr Ricciardi said.
Once transmission supply is restored, SA Power Networks can progressively restore power to homes and businesses.
SA Power Networks advised that as a result of the loss of transmission supply from ElectraNet’s network yesterday, over 10,000 of their customers across the Peninsula are without power.
Further information about distribution outages is available from SA Power Networks through the ‘Current Interruptions’ section of their website, www.sapowernetworks.com.au, or by calling 13 13 66.
