Power outages, faults and emergencies

What do I do if my electricity goes out?

If there’s any risk to life or property, call 000 right away.

Otherwise, you can get information about a particular outage from your energy distributor. If you’re not sure who yours is, you can look it up here, or check your bill for their name and contact details.

Your distributor’s outage map can give you useful information about a blackout in your area.
