Planned interruptions

SA Power Networks is committed to providing a safe and reliable electricity supply for South Australians.  To do this, there are times when we need to interrupt your power supply - usually for upgrades of the electricity network to meet future demand; to ensure the quality of supply (within Australian voltage standards); to connect new customers; or for planned maintenance of the network, which minimises the risk of unplanned outages.

We make every effort to ensure information on upcoming planned work is accurate at the time published.

If you are checking for today's planned work, you will find the status to be blank.  For work today where the power has already been interrupted, please check our current power interruptions page or contact our 24 hour faults and emergencies number 13 13 66.

For upcoming work, please note that the times provided on written notifications and below are the maximum anticipated outage times. Power may be turned off later than advised, and be restored either earlier than advised or, in rare cases, later than advised if there has been a complication.

Please note, planned work may not proceed in extreme weather or due to unforeseen circumstances.

We recommend that you plan for the outage to last the entire estimated duration and register with Power@MyPlace™ for SMS updates on outages affecting your property.

About planned work

When we plan work on our electricity network in your area, we aim to provide you with a minimum of four business days' notice.  In most instances we will send a notification card via post, or hand delivered to your letterbox.  From time to time we notify our customers via local newspapers and/or radio advertising.

If you have received an 'Interruption to your power supply' notification card, the times advised on the card are a guide only and are intended to advise the maximum time that your power could be interrupted.  You should assume that you will not have power for the entire duration of the planned work, however the power may go off later than the time advised, may come back on earlier than the time advised, or in rare cases work may go over the anticipated timeframe.

Customers can register to receive an SMS confirmation when the power is restored after a planned outage. Please visit Power@MyPlace™ for more details.

There may be occasions when we cancel scheduled work.  This could be due to major weather events such as heatwaves, bushfires or storms when crews may be assisting in other areas to restore power supply, when crews have already worked the maximum hours allowed under safety regulations, or if working temperatures exceed safety guidelines.

 

Getting updates

We regret that we are not normally able to provide advance direct notification on the rare occasions we cancel work due to the short lead time and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  Where possible, we will use every endeavour to provide updates about planned interruption cancellations on this page.  In the event work is cancelled, we will provide you with follow-up written advice when the work is rescheduled.

You may check the SA Power Networks website on the morning of the date you have been notified your power will be interrupted to verify if the work will proceed as planned. Updates are made daily at 8am, and on Fridays for weekend work.

We recommend you place the notification card in a visible place, such as on your refrigerator, as a reminder of when you will not have power.  Please ensure other members of your household or business, or any electrical contractor who may be conducting work at your property, are also aware of the power outage.

 

Your feedback

We regularly seek feedback from customers to improve our service. Some have suggested that conducting planned work at night when most people are asleep would be more convenient. While some work may take place at night such as along major roads or if the power outage affects an entire substation area, normally in country areas, we are unable to do this in most cases as the lighting required to undertake our work safely, and the noise levels involved in the work, would be disruptive to residents.

 

Why does the power need to be off for so long?

Due to the time taken to safely prepare our network for maintenance, there is less disruption to customers in having the power interrupted in one long period to do multiple jobs, rather than spread across multiple days. On rare occasions major projects will require multiple power outages and we notify affected customers in these situations.

 

Things to remember during a planned power outage:

  • No power means no internet and email unless you have wireless service.
  • Some phones, particularly cordless ones, may not operate.
  • Many electric garage doors and gates can be operated manually. Please check before the date of your power outage or refer to the instruction manual. If there is no manual override mechanism, you may wish to either leave the door or gate open before the power goes out, or leave items you will need to access, such as your car, outside the garage or property before the power goes out.
  • Most security systems will have back up batteries and will not be affected by a power interruption, although this will depend on factors such as the condition of the batteries. Please refer to the manual or with the installer or manufacturer to check how long the battery will provide temporary power to your security system.
  • A refrigerator will keep food cold longer if you do not open the door. Resist the temptation to open it to check the contents. This particularly applies to your freezer.
  • If the weather is hot, consider the option of visiting relatives or friends who have power, or go to a public place with air conditioning such as a library, community centre or shopping centre. Check that electrical appliances such as stoves and heaters are switched off as there is a risk of fire when power supply is restored if these are left unattended.
  • Make sure that all taps are turned off if you use an electric pressure pump. This will prevent flooding if power is restored when you are not home.
  • If water supply is from tanks or a bore, then alternatives to the normal electric pressure pump should be considered.
  • Remember continuous use of water from an electric hot water system will result in cold water. Consider this if you anticipate a long wait before power is restored.
  • Most customers with Photovoltaic (PV) solar array systems will also experience a power outage and will not be able to use their own generated power, or export energy back into our network for safety reasons. You may like to check with your electrician or solar installer to identify if your system will still operate when mains power is not available.
  • Customers using life support medical equipment are also affected by power outages, both planned and unplanned. Refer to your emergency action plan, or create one if you haven't already done so. Contact your medical practitioner for advice if necessary. Life support fact sheets are available at www.sapowernetworks.com.au

Please note that if we are taking action to prevent or rectify an emergency or unplanned power outage we are not able to notify you in advance of an interruption to your power supply.

You are welcome to contact us on 13 12 61 if you have any queries about a planned power outage.
