Prepare for power outages

We keep electricity supplies reliable 99.9% of the time but power outages can still happen.

Unexpected outages can happen for a number of reasons, including bad weather and animals or tree branches interfering with poles or wires.

We’ll also plan outages so our Lineys can safely maintain, repair or upgrade parts of the network.

By being prepared for a power outage you’ll be better able to recover and safely get back to normal when electricity is restored.

Download our Liney Lessons checklists for tips on how to prepare, respond and recover from power outages.
