Major Fire Updates
Electrical assets are owned and maintained in the Sutherland Shire by AusGrid. These assets can be in the form of overhead wires, where it is important to "Look Up and Live", but it is becoming more common to see the use of underground power assets. As with Gas assets, it is important when conducting excavation works, even on your own property, to contact Dial Before You Dig (DBYD), it is a Free service to help keep you safe by avoiding potential damage to underground assets.
The trimming of trees around overhead power lines to maintain safe clearances is a common task undertaken by AusGrid within the Shire, for more information on this please visit their Request Tree Trimming page.
To see if there are any scheduled power outages in your area please visit the AusGrid page and enter your postcode.
