The NSW Government has called an urgent meeting with an energy company after a second major power outage hit Sydney's CBD in less than a week, with an angry premier declaring ``it's not good enough''.

Power company EnergyAustralia has apologised for the second major disruption to Sydney's power supply this week, which affected about 50,000 homes and businesses.

Properties in the northern part of the city, along with parts of eastern and inner city suburbs, were blacked out at 10.28am on Saturday.

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd is standing by his Defence Minister, but says he is disappointed Joel Fitzgibbon failed to declare gifts he received from a Chinese-born businesswoman.

Mr Fitzgibbon last night admitted he failed to declare that Helen Liu paid for him to visit China in 2002 and 2005, and gave him a suit last year, which he later returned.

He previously said that he had only ever received small Christmas and birthday gifts from Ms Liu, who Mr Fitzgibbon says is a close family friend.
