Tauranga power cut

Thursday, July 30, 2015

Power was cut to almost 10,000 Powerco customers in Tauranga last evening after a cat climbed onto outdoor electrical switchgear at the Otumoetai substation.

All power was restored by 8.25pm, following the 7.20pm outage which caused loss of supply to the Greerton, Otumoetai, Matua and Bethlehem areas, Powerco Acting Network Operations Manager Dean Stevenson said.
