Hi @michael48

 

Thank you for reaching out. 

 

I am sorry to hear about your frustrating experience with receiving notifications from Essential Energy around planned outages. From time to time, Essential Energy will need to work on the distribution network to ensure the delivery of essential services to your premises. If a planned interruption is scheduled in your area, Essential Energy will notify you by any appropriate means, of the interruption at least four business days before the date of the interruption, not including the date of the notice. The notification will have an expected date, time and duration of the planned interruption and will include a 24-hour telephone number for enquiries.  If you have any questions in regards to planned or unplanned outages, feel free to contact Essential Energy via 132 080. 

 

Kind Regards, 

Natalie
