Why does Western Power only provide an estimated restoration time?

Estimated restoration times relating to postcodes are only ever estimates.

This is because in a ‘postcode area’ there are numerous powerlines that are not necessarily interconnected, which means that restoring power to a line may return power to some customers in one street, but not others.

Additionally, conditions on the ground can change which may impact how safely and quickly our crews can repair the network and restore power.
