Power back in Proserpine
Ergon Energy has fully restored power in Proserpine town – where it is safe to do so.
General Manager Operations Steve Leighton said crews had today (Thursday) completed remaining service connections to premises after a massive repair and restoration effort to get the town up and running after Cyclone Ului crossed the coast early on Sunday morning and caused significant damage to Ergon Energy key substations and high voltage distribution network.
“There will still be some premises that have sustained structural damage which we will not be able to reconnect for safety reasons. We advise owners of these premises to engage contractors to carry out repairs before we can safely reconnect them.”
“If customers have not got power and have been connected to the network call us on 132296 and we will follow up.”
“We managed to get the Crystalbrook , Dingo Beach areas back on yesterday and are working on other out going feeders from the Proserpine substation including the Strathdickie feeder which has been partially restored but due to tree damage in a number of locations, final restoration will be delayed to remaining customers in the Mt Martin area and Conway and Wilson Beaches until tomorrow” he said.
