Hydro Tasmania not expecting blackouts

Hydro Tasmania has rejected claims by Unions Tasmania that energy blackouts are imminent.

Hydro Tasmania is working with the Tasmanian Government to implement the Energy Supply Plan, which is intended to ensure the state’s demand is met through until winter rains.

“Hydro Tasmania has no knowledge of our people preparing for blackouts, we are not advising our people to do anything of the sort and to suggest otherwise is irresponsible and an inaccurate representation of the business and our people,” the company said.
