Energex flicks the switch on $13 million upgrade

Queensland electricity provider Energex has completed a major upgrade to the Sunshine Coast’s network, which will enhance the power supplies for more than 13,000 homes and businesses.

The $13 million project involved upgrading the Noosaville substation with a new transformer, switchboard and capacitor bank, as well as enhancements to the local electricity network.

The improvements provide additional capacity and enhance reliability for homes and businesses in Noosaville, Tewantin, Sunrise Beach, Sunshine Beach, Noosa Junction and Noosa Heads, including the Hastings Street tourism precinct.

The completion of the Noosaville project closely follows the recent completion of a new $17 million new substation at Pinbarren, which will benefit more than 2000 homes and businesses in the local area.
