Weekend Energy Shift

Two large gas turbines (generators) will be used to supply power to Broken Hill and the nearby towns of Menindee, Sunset Strip, Wilcannia, White Cliffs, Tibooburra, and surrounding rural areas on Saturday, November 4 and Sunday, November 5.

The work – to be carried out by Transgrid – will take place on the transmission lines in and around Buronga, impacting the power supply to Broken Hill, as power is fed into the area from the high voltage lines that travel through Buronga.

Essential Energy does not anticipate any interruption to the power supply as a result of the turbines on the weekend, however remind residents to have power contingency plans in place in the event of unforeseen circumstances that result in power failure.
