About one hundred homes and businesses in Echuca have suffered a power outage because of the heat this afternoon.
A Powercor spokesperson said the outage occured around 3.40pm and affected about 106 properties in an area near the corner of Ogilvie Ave and Crossen St.
‘‘It’s a small area. A high voltage fuse has blown because of the heat,’’ he said.
The spokesperson said the heatwave of the past four days had led to extremely high electricity loads across the system.
‘‘Normally there is 6-7mW per day across the state, but the last four days have seen loadings of 10mW per day,’’ he said.
He said crews were en route to fix the problem and the outage was expected to last until about 9.30pm.
