2x Power Outages Next Week!

There will be 2 power outages next week as Ausgrid work on our energy supply's reliability. Unfortunately, they can not combine the works on the same day and thus cause only one outage.

The first planned power outage will affect the South side of the island along Thompson and Richard Rds generally between Carols and Bell Wharves. This will occur on Tuesday, 22nd of September, between 7:00am and 1:00pm. Please see this map below for further details.

The second planned power outage will affect the whole island and is on Thursday, 24th of September, between 7:00am and 5:00pm

Due to the ongoing works to upgrade our power supply, Ausgrid is required to cut the supply of power on Thursday the 24th of September, from 7:00am through to 5:00pm.


Planned Power Outage: 24th Sept
Start: 7:00am on 24 Sep 2020
Finish: 5:00pm on 24 Sep 2020
Duration: 10 hours


SIRA will send out a further reminder a few days prior to the outage day.
