* Oh no - don't go! Want a better plan? Let's find you one!

Firstly, check your neighbours. Are there lights out elsewhere?

There are a few possible causes for your home or business losing power.

Safety first! Always call 000 if you're concerned about a gas leak. Also:

  • open all doors and windows
  • don't smoke or light matches or candles
  • avoid switching lights or appliances on or off

And for leaks or any situations with malfunctioning gas appliances, notify your gas distributor.

Find your distributor

Something broken? In a life-threatening emergency, call 000.

For non-life threatening concerns, here's what to do:

  • For damage to electricity and natural gas infrastructure (power lines, gas lines, etc), contact your distributor
  • For broken or damaged meters, call us on 13 24 61
  • For hot water service, repairs and installations, call us on 1300 180 588

We'll be sorry to hear that you're displeased with something.
