Power

Essential Energy report they have more then 400 team members working across the South East of NSW today, continuing with repairs and assessing new damage to the network following the fire events over the past two days.

In Eurobodalla yesterday Essential Energy was successful in restoring power to more than 4,500 customers who lost supply on Thursday due to the Clyde Mountain Fire. 1,700 customers remain without power. This includes 500 customers who have been without power since the New Years Eve fire. These people have been contacted to discuss alternative power arrangements.

Teams are located at Potato Point and Bodalla where repairs are being made to return power. Some areas are unable to be accessed due to active fires, however Essential Energy continues to work with the RFS to understand where and when it is safe to enter and assess damage. Dedicated crews also continuing to make repairs along the network where previous fires caused extensive damage.
