No one wants a blackout during the eclipse

Let's keep our power use down during the eclipse season.

The 2023 Solar Eclipse is an extraordinary and rare astronomical event, coming to Exmouth this April

On April 20, the shadow of the moon will graze the tip of the state in a 40-kilometre-wide track, as it travels over one of the most beautiful parts of the world – the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo region near Exmouth. Exmouth is the only town within the line of totality making it one of the only places on earth to experience a Total Solar Eclipse, one of nature’s most phenomenal occurrences.

A lot of people are coming from all over the world to see the total eclipse. We don’t know exactly how many, but we do know there will be a lot more demand on essential services like power in Exmouth and surrounding towns.
