Conserve energy through peak times

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we all work together to conserve power which helps us to keep the power on for everyone in our community.

Transpower are working hard to install a temporary tower so that the high voltage circuit from the fallen tower can be restored. At this stage we understand this work will take through the weekend to complete.

Currently all residential and most businesses have power, but until Transpower has the temporary tower up we will be running on reduced power.

This means we need your ongoing help to conserve electricity during peak times of 4pm to 10pm tonight and tomorrow night, and 8am to 10am tomorrow morning.

Tonight and tomorrow night it would be great if you can continue to conserve power. Last night’s efforts helped us to keep the lights on for everyone, thank you

We will be turning off the hot water during these peak times, but turning it back on in the middle of the day and overnight to ensure you still have hotwater in cylinders.

We’d like to give a huge shout-out to our large industrial customers who have had to shut down their operations, meaning that their normal power use could be distributed around the network to get power on to households, schools and other businesses. Without their help, we would need to be rationing power to everyone.

We’ll keep in touch as things progress but people should be prepared for the possibility of more outages, particuarly if power demand exceeds what we have available.
