Final update: Power restored to Far North and Northland

05 February 2017

Transpower advises its transmission lines feeding the Northland area have been put back into service following a large scrub fire this evening.

The fire has been bought under control and power restored to the transmission network. However, with an outage of this size, it will take some further time for Top Energy to progressively restore power to its network. Residents should expect to have power restored within the next 30minutes.

Our apologies for the inconvenience this has caused.
