An unplanned power outage affected 2,039 homes and businesses in Mudgee, and the surrounding area from around 9.15 on Saturday morning.

Operations manager Macquarie, Jamie Warren, says for the safety of the public and their property, the electricity network was switched off due to a tree falling over powerlines in Waterworks Road.

He says that crews worked as quickly as safety allowed and power was restored to all customers at 10.21am

Essential Energy reminds the public to report fallen or damaged powerlines immediately by calling 13 20 80 and to stay at least eight metres away from the line and anything in contact with it.
