Eaton Blackout Tracker power outage tracker

Friday, 22 January, 2010

Eaton Corporation has created a Blackout Tracker that provides a snapshot of reported power outages across Australia and New Zealand.

During the past year, Eaton monitored power outages across both sides of the Tasman Sea to create an interactive and educational resource about the causes and impact of power outages. From burrowing animals and human errors to extreme weather and vandalism, power can go down without warning from a variety of causes. This information is now captured and accessible at

This resource is suitable for use by the media, businesses, bloggers or those with a general interest.

On the Blackout Tracker, a map of Australia and New Zealand is divided into several geographic regions. Site visitors can view a region or individual state to see specific information about blackouts such as the duration and the number of people affected. The site also categorises blackouts by cause (animals, weather/falling trees, theft/vandalism, faulty equipment/human error, vehicle accidents, planned, unknown) so site users can see the most common causes of power outages in their state or region.

The Tracker will be continuously updated and visitors are invited to submit their own outage reports online and request an annual Blackout Tracker report that provides a statistical analysis of power outages reported across the nation and in their home state.
