Minor faults and outages
For minor faults and outages in your area, you'll need to contact your energy distributor. They are responsible for the supply of energy – that is, the poles and wires, gas pipes, and connections to your home – whereas AGL takes care of your account. There are different distributors in different areas.
Find the name and phone number of your energy distributor in the top right corner of your AGL bill (look for the phone number next to 'Faults and emergencies'). Most distributors have a map of current faults and outages on their websites.
