Power interruptions expected during major upgrade of Cooloola electricity grid

Energex crews will be working hard around Rainbow Beach in the coming weeks undertaking major upgrades on the local electricity network.

The upgrades will ensure a more reliable power supply to the region and with crews replacing equipment nearing the end of its useful life including 50 power poles and other major electrical hardware.

Energex crews will be working on the 11,000 volt sections of the network and for safety reasons will have to interrupt supply from time to time for up to eight hours.

To reduce inconvenience, outages are planned for late nights until early mornings between 1 and 22 August.

Energex appreciates the community’s patience and understanding while this essential work is underway.
