When did the power go off here? I can't remember, but I sent an email to PowerCorp / CitiPower and a reply came back with a direct telephone number to call to discuss the matter, the matter being when I rang our power supplier Origin, the call went to PowerCorp / CitiPower and the phone menu would not accept me as a customer after entering my post code, 3004. This left me nowhere to go with the phone menu.
3004 is the post code for St Kilda Road and the parallel Queens Road and Queens Lane and the short streets intersecting them.
After checking my address and some further verification, I was told that it was probable that the system did not accept 3004. There was no indication to me that this would be fixed, rather the suggestion that I use the post code 3000, which is pretty well the Melbourne Central Business District. A curious question was, did you try 3000? Why would I try a post code that wasn't mine?
Bah, I have an exclusive post code and I can't use it. How will PowerCorp know I am a VIP and deserve to have my electric supply uninterupted, and not your basic city dweller, if I can't use my 3004 post code?
