After a mammoth effort preparing for and responding to devastating floods in the Townsville region, Ergon Energy crews have restored power to all electrically safe properties.
Ergon Energy has finalised plans aiming to restore power to 80 per cent of customers affected by the devastating Far North Queensland floods by Sunday 10 February, and 100 per cent restored by Tuesday 12 February.
Ergon Energy urges customers with rooftop solar PV systems to exercise a high level of safety and to be aware of the potential risks to their installations following the North Queensland flood.
Ergon Energy is cautioning residents who may be affected by power supply interruptions due to flooding in North Queensland to ensure they use generators safely.
Ergon Energy has begun the challenge of restoring power to the Townsville community after an unprecedented and catastrophic flood that impacted the power supply to 16,500 customers at its peak today.
Ergon Energy is well prepared to support customers and communities affected by severe weather as the risk of a tropical cyclone forming in the Gulf of Carpentaria remains high.
Ergon Energy workers and meter readers won’t enter yards where dogs are not securely restrained as part of new safety measures being introduced this month.
With so many people working in their yard over the holiday period, Ergon Energy is reminding them to be aware of underground and overhead electrical dangers in and around their property.
For many, the festive season is not about relaxation – it’s about being busy getting stuck into the DIY jobs around the home.
Christmas is a time of relaxing with friends and family, but there’s a band of staff at Ergon Energy who’ll be working hard to keep the lights on Christmas Day.
