Ergon Energy’s Woodgate substation (QLD) has been severely damaged by a direct lightning strike that damaged a transformer and affected power supply to customers.

Network settings have been adjusted and additional generation units have been brought in to maintain supply to customers until the substation is repaired.

The network was reconfigured after the lightning strike to supply customers from another source, but they could only be added progressively as the load declined.
