Safety is our number one priority. We want everyone who lives or works near our networks to be safe.

Most New Zealanders live near electricity and gas networks. Contractors, horticultural workers, farmers and others also have to work near them.

Being around electricity and gas networks can be dangerous. Our staff and contractors are highly trained and use special equipment and safety clothing. For everyone else, it’s important to know what the dangers are and how to avoid them.

Please call Powerco's emergency number 0800 27 27 27 if you see dangerous sections of network or lines that are down (24-hours-a-day).

Powerco's phone number for gas-related emergencies is 0800 111 848 (24-hours-a-day).
