Is Electricity an essential service for all Australians? It would appear not to the people of Eyre Peninsula, South Australia.
You can no longer do business or even live on Eyre Peninsula unless you get yourself a generator, you just have to have one.

p.s. the power went off twice while trying to write this post!
