Essential Energy says it has restored power to almost all customers who had their power cut in the January bushfires, and hopes everyone will be back on the grid by the weekend.
Speaking on Monday, February 10, a spokesperson said crews had restored power to all 4,100 customers in the Bega Valley and would continue to maintain and patrol the network "to ensure all damage from the fires has been completed and accounted for".
"Repairs across the Moruya region continued with restoration efforts focussed in Nerrigundah over the weekend, with crews replacing more than 25 poles in the area," the utility said.
"Wet weather and slippery conditions have caused set backs on network repairs in Mt Darrah, Narooma and Rockton, with safe access not available in some areas.
"These areas will continue to be monitored by teams throughout today/tomorrow so that once access is available repairs can be finalised."
Fire damaged more than 2,165 power poles across South East NSW and 1,822 have been replaced.
"Essential Energy has been in contact with bushfire-affected customers who remain without power, offering additional fuel vouchers and providing estimated restoration dates," the utility said.
