January 4 is looming as a concerning day for power supplies in New South Wales and Victoria, due to the combination of forecast high temperatures and ongoing bushfires. Power outages in those areas impacted by bushfires could last for another week, with many electricity lines destroyed by the fires inaccessible to repair crews. Snowy Hydro CEO Paul Broad says the Australian Energy Market Operator has been in close contact with generation and transmission companies to ensure everything possible has been done to ensure power remains available on 4 January.
