Notification of works

Narrung Peninsula works

May 2024 – July 2024

What we’re doing

We have commenced a project to improve power reliability along the Narrung peninsula. This part of the network is susceptible to corrosion due to local salinity.

We are upgrading the 33,000 Volt high voltage overhead powerline between Meningie and Campbell Park substations. This includes replacing 11 Stobie poles and upgrading all insulators and cross arms at 24 existing Stobie pole locations in the Narrung peninsula area.

The map gives an indication of the area impacted.

How this affects you

Civil works have commenced and are expected to finish by the end of June. This work includes installing new Stobie pole foundations beneath existing powerlines. 

Following the civil works, we will install new Stobie poles and overhead powerlines with the aim to complete all work by July.

To ensure the safety of both our workers and the community, we will implement traffic management measures when working. 

The majority of work will be conducted during daylight hours with the possibility of some weekend work.

We will inform you in advance if there are any night works that affect you.

Work won't be conducted every day during this period and project timeframes may change due to unforeseen issues.


We will have generation at our substation to minimise power outages. When we remove the generator, there will be a short power interruption.

Power outages

Some customers in the Narrung peninsula area will experience a power outage on Thursday 27 June between 8am and 3pm of less than three minutes.
We are unable to be more specific on when that will occur at this stage as it depends on the process of work with crews needing flexibility for safety reasons.

If you are subscribed to SMS or email notifications, we will notify you before the scheduled power outage. If you do not already receive free SMS / email updates about your power, you can sign up to receive outage notifications or call us for assistance to sign up.

You need the National Meter Identifier (NMI) from your electricity bill to subscribe.


There will be dust, vibration and noise from our work, with heavy machinery and vehicles such as cranes, however our crews will minimise these disruptions as much as possible. 

Thank you

We apologise for any inconvenience you may experience, and thank you in advance for your patience during this important work.
