SA Power Networks is excited to be energising the new undersea cable to Kangaroo Island as a back up power supply.

It will be supplying power to KI this weekend via the Island generator while its crews connect the new undersea cable.

There will be short power outage of around 15 minutes on Saturday, May 18 some time between 6am and 8am to connect the generator safely.

When SA Power Networks has completed its work on Sunday, May 19, there will be a second short outage of around 15 minutes between 9am to 11am to reconnect power to the main grid.
