If you can’t make a cup of coffee this morning — you’re not alone.
Essential Energy is doing network maintenance in a large area impacting Woodenbong, Tabulam, Bonalbo, Mallanganee, Urbenville, Ewingar, Piora, Drake and Shannonbrook.
More than 1500 customers are affected, Essential Energy said.
Work started at 8am this morning, Sunday, November 5 and is expected to be completed by 4pm.
Wires have been down and are being repaired in the Afterlee area. This happened yesterday, Saturday, November 4 and is expected to be fixed today. This is affecting power supply to more than 60 homes.
So unless you have your own generator, it is a day without power which makes it difficult to make that coffee.
Casino is unaffected.
Powick’s Pantry in Bonalbo has a generator and is open until 2pm.
