Mur’bah main street power upgrade completed

ESSENTIAL Energy has completed its upgrade of power supply infrastructure in the main street of Murwillumbah.+

Crews replaced 200m of powerline with specialised bundled aluminium cable which has a protective coating to minimise the risk of unplanned power supply interruptions caused by vegetation or wildlife coming into contact with the lines, and will make power supply more reliable.

The aluminium cable is also proven to be more resistant to weathering, is longer lasting than steel and copper line and has greater capacity.
