ESSENTIAL Energy crews are investigating the cause behind two blackouts in effect across Orange.
The main outage, which has affected 1602 residents, occurred just after 11am.
It covers a large area, starting west of Hill Street and south of Summer Street, including Woodward Street, Barrett's Estate, Towac Park, Pinnacle Road and parts of Calare.
The second, located along Burrendong Way, including parts of Cassey Crescent, Matthews Avenue and Rawle Avenue, occurred just after 1pm and affected 88 customers.
Both causes are currently unknown.
A third outage on the Northern Distributor Road, near Ophir Road, is a planned outage for general maintenance, with power to be restored by 4pm.
More to come.
