Last update:18/09/2020 9:10 a.m. from https://mainpower.co.nz/


There are currently multiple outages across the network due to damage caused by strong winds: Culverden Basin including Culverden West and Hawarden West, Waiau, Leslie Hills, Emu Plains and Hanmer South. We have all available resources dispatched and are attending to outages as quickly as we can. Customers in the surrounding areas may experience temporary outages while repairs are being made.

Due to damage on the network caused by these strong winds and extreme weather experienced, most planned outages scheduled for today, 18 September 2020, will be moved to the alternate date. Please visit the Planned Outages page on the MainPower website for the most up to date information.

Our crews are focusing on making the network safe and will begin repairs as soon as possible once safe. We are expecting power will be off in some areas until later today, and remote areas may be off until tomorrow.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

Treat all lines as live during the outage period; power may be restored at any time. If you are aware of any damage or require further information please call MainPower’s 24-hour fault line – 0800 30 90 80; to report an emergency call 111.
