CTC advises Old Bar residents who live in the area as per photo below to switch off and unplug Computers/printers and Modems on Thurs night for the planned power outage early morning Friday 30th August.
Other advice from Essential Energy:
1. you can help protect sensitive electrical appliances, such as computers, by switching them off and unplugging them before the planned outage time
2. if you rely on an electric pumping system for your household water supply, make sure you store enough water for your needs while the power is off
3. switch off stove hotplates, ovens, and any other small appliances in case you’re not home when power is restored, and avoid opening your fridge or freezer while the power is off
4. there should be no need to turn off solar inverters – they should automatically turn off and back on.
