Notifications will begin once we are no longer in an emergency event. You will still receive a letter notifying you of planned outages. You can view updates on Outage Finder.

Upcoming meter read if dogs are onsite
If you have dogs at your address, you’ll receive a notification 24 hours before your scheduled meter read so you can ensure dogs are suitably restrained.
For safety reasons our crews will not enter the property if there are unrestrained dogs. Please ensure that dogs are properly restrained and separated from any work area: either kept indoors, on a firm leash or behind a secure barrier. Read more on our safe entry practices.
Please note: If we are unable to read your meter on your scheduled read date due to unforeseen circumstances, we will send you an updated notification. If your scheduled read date follows a public holiday, you may not receive a notification.
Our crews are on the way
On certain customer service work requests, we will let you know when crews are on the way so you can be on-site, if required.
If our crews are diverted for any reason (e.g. to handle emergency jobs) we will send an updated notification to let you know we are unable to attend.
Please note: We have provided an approximate estimated arrival time of 1 hour for some regional areas and for other more remote areas, no timeframe will be advised. Please note that crews could be delayed due to access issues or other unforeseen delays.
