Outages and Emergencies

If you are concerned that a significant incident or fault poses a risk to life or property, call 000 now.

  • If there's an electrical outage or fault in your area, you'll need to contact your energy distributor. They’re responsible for the supply of energy to your property – that is, the poles and wires, gas pipes, and connections.

  • Distributors are different depending on your area. You can locate your distributor’s contact details on the top right corner of your LPE bill, next to ‘Faults and Emergencies’.

  • Below, you’ll see a list of electricity Distribution Network Service Providers and their contact numbers and links to their help pages. If you are still unsure, please visit the Australian Energy Regulator website: www.aer.gov.au/consumers/who-is-my-distributor.
