NEV Power understands that from time to time customers may experience unexpected issues with their electricity service.
Who do I contact if there is an emergency?
For all life-threatening emergencies: Dial 000 for Ambulance, Fire Brigade or Police.
What do I do if I have lost power?
If you have lost power to your home please first check if the circuit breakers in your power board have tripped. This may have been caused by a faulty appliance. If this does not seem to be the problem or you are at all uncertain we encourage you to immediately report your problem to NEV Power by calling 02 4328 1588. If you make the call outside of normal business hours you may be redirected to an emergency response number.
For urgent issues relating directly to the mains electricity supply – Contact AUSGRID on 131388.
NEV Power will investigate the issue raised. If the fault is with the your own electricity system you will be asked to contact an external electrical contractor for assistance. NEV Power will provide assistance to enable you to safely isolate your system until the fault is rectified.
If the reason for the loss of power is identified as being outside you property NEV Power will take responsibility for engaging suitable technicians to rectify the problem as quickly as possible. NEV Power undertakes to provide you with regular updates on progress to resolving the problem.
