For many people, the cause of a power outage is unknown, and it can be very difficult to determine exactly what has caused the power outage. Determining the cause of the power outage is the first step you need to take in order to get it fixed. There are a number of ways you can determine why your power has gone out, but before that, it's best to know what the most common causes for power outages in Australia are:

What is causing my power outage?

  1. Severe Weather: Storms often bring strong winds, heavy rain and lightning strikes, all of which can cause debris such as tree limbs and branches to bring down power lines. Flooding and heavy rain can also inundate transformer stations and cause blackouts.
  2. Power Spikes: Spikes are sharp increases in voltage that cause power outages. The most common causes for spikes are lightning strikes, tripped circuit breakers, short circuits and overloaded power boards.
  3. Damage to power poles: Direct damage to power poles can cause power outages. Vehicular accidents are one of the most common causes for this.
  4. Bushfires: Electricity is often turned off during bushfires for safety reasons. Check to see if there are bushfires in your area.
  5. Animals: Wildlife can occasionally cause power outages by coming into contact with transmission wires and electrical equipment

There are three generally accepted types of power outages, which can range from a second to several days long. 

What types of power outages are there?

  1. Brownouts: These are temporary drops in voltage, causing lights to dim momentarily. Some of these are intentionally done by technicians to prevent overloading. Unintentional brownouts may be caused by an overloading power board or short circuit.
  2. Blackouts: This is caused by a total power loss over a defined area. The cause can be many factors and can last anywhere from a couple of minutes or hours to days. These are usually accidental, but sometimes these outages are planned by energy providers to perform maintenance.
  3. Permanent Faults: These outages are caused by a fault in the power line which causes severe power shortages. Power is restored often by removing the fault.

When you experience a power outage, it is important to eliminate all potential causes before calling an electrician. Many outages are external and are serviced by energy providers like Energex and Origin. To identify if the problem is external or internal, follow these steps: 

How do I fix a power outage?

  1. Check your electricity provider's outage map. This map will tell if you the outage was a planned or unplanned outage and provides an estimate of when the power will be restored. If it is not planned, it may take a few minutes for your outage to appear on the map as people report it. If no one else is reporting the outage, then it points to a problem within your home or premises.
  2. Check if any lights or electrical appliances are currently working. A partial power outage in your house points to a problem within your home or premises.
  3. If it is safe to do so, carefully check outside for damage to nearby powerlines. Stay away from any fallen powerlines or fallen trees near powerlines. Ensure authorities are notified of fallen powerlines.
  4. Check if your neighbours have power. Once again, if your neighbours have power while you do not, this likely means that the problem is within your home.


If the cause is outside the home, contact your energy provider and report the problem. If you believe the problem is within your home however, contact us and we'll help you fix the problem and get power restored as soon as possible.
