We are pleased to share our Resilience Strategy.
The strategy brings together customer feedback and independent climate modelling to take a targeted approach designed to make a real difference to our most vulnerable communities.
It will also help us to anticipate, withstand, recover and learn from major weather events.
Resilience initiatives identified in the strategy include:
- Replacing timber poles and bare conductors (that can spark, starting fires) with covered conductors in our most bushfire prone areas.
- Raising powerlines in flood-prone areas of the Hawkesbury Nepean catchments.
- Providing back-up power to critical infrastructure at community hubs in times of emergency.
The Strategy will be updated as we learn, adapting our targeted initiatives to respond to learnings and emerging threats to the reliability of our customers’ service.
