This update follows our earlier update on the outage affecting the Wider Taupō region. Our crews are currently onsite and have restored power to Wairakei substation. We estimate it will take some time for Unison to restore power to individuals and businesses in affected areas.
The outage was caused by an electrical equipment fault which occurred on one of the feeders that supply Unison, the local lines company.
There is never a good time for communities to be without power, and we apologise for the inconvenience. Our priority is restoring power supply to the wider Taupō region as soon, and as safely, as possible
We will continue to provide further updates on our Facebook page.
