Emergency outage required in Gin Gin area

Published: 13 Mar 2017 2:50pm

Ergon Energy will have an emergency power supply interruption affecting about 2800 customers in the Kolan region tomorrow morning.

The outage is required so crews can safely repair a 66kV sub-transmission line that supplies the Wallaville and Monduran substations after it sustained damage from a lightning strike.

Customers in Gin Gin, Wallaville, Mt Perry, Booyal, Monduran, Tirroan and surrounding areas will be affected between 9.30am and 11am.

The urgency of this work, given the risk of the line failing, means customers cannot be notified by mail in advance of the outage, as occurs for planned power supply interruptions.

Ergon apologises to customers for the inconvenience and is taking measures to minimise the duration of the outage.
