Newsletter for Offshore Residents of Pittwater, Australia

Ausgrid Update.

Emergency crews from Ausgrid are working to connect mobile generators to local homes on the western foreshores of Pittwater to safely restore the power supply this afternoon.

This  follows yesterday's fault on a submarine power cable which interrupted the supply to about 160 homes.

Residents affected by the power outage are asked to limit their electricity use where possible, while connected to the generators. This will help ensure the power supply remains safe , while crews complete the cable repairs.

This includes avoiding the use of air conditioning where possible and being mindful of switching off electrical appliances that are not in use.

We expect repairs to start next week, Crews are arranging a barge so they can lift the cable out of the water to complete the repairs,  Repairs are expected to be complex and may take some time.

During the course of repairs it is likely that the passage of vessels around Church Point Marina will be impacted, so we ask anyone on the water to be mindful.

If residents experience any power outages they are urged to call Ausgrid's emergency line on 13 13 88 as soon as possible.

Ausgrid thanks residents for their patience.
