Gemfields power interruption to connect new line

Published: 17 Sep 2015 9:48am

Ergon Energy will be conducting a planned power interruption to 1,225 customers in the Gemfields area next Tuesday 22/9/15 to connect the recently completed power upgrade to the area.

Customer Delivery Manager Brian Dingle said the work was scheduled between 9am and 3pm in order to connect a newly constructed 22 klm section of the high voltage feeder supplying the area.

All affected customers have been notified through Ergon’s planned outage notification process.   

Full commissioning of the upgrade is scheduled for completion by the end of this month after some final work is completed near the Emerald zone substation. This work will not require an interruption to power supply.

Mr Dingle thanked all customers for their patience and understanding while the upgrade was completed.
