Dunlite TV commercial on storm, fire and power shortages this season

This season, not only are there storm and fires to look out for, we now have an impending energy crisis approaching.

In September 2016 nearly all of South Australia went without power, some for up to three days. And they’ve had two more major blackouts since then. Tasmania had its own energy crisis too.

Now we’re being told to expect power shortages and blackouts become more frequent and severe across the country.

Luckily Dunlite Power Equipment offers a range of generators to suit any purpose and budget. So you can safeguard access to power for your home and business and be calm in a crisis.

If you want the job done right, get a Dunlite.
