Buckland Road network renewal project

To improve the long-term reliability of power supply for customers, we will be working in your area in 2021 to replace poles, powerlines and other overhead hardware.  

There will be a series of outages in March-April affecting northern addresses in Buckland Road.  The work will resume again later in the year, with works a bit further south Buckland Road (including Mathieson Road) on the books for late 2021. 

The map below indicates the two work areas; your retailer (the company you pay your power to) should also send you notifications of each outage you will be affected by.   Alternatively, you can check whether your address will be affected on our planned power outages search page: https://www.powerco.co.nz/planned-power-outages

We will be making every effort to ensure the project proceeds as scheduled; however all work is weather-dependent so our outage dates and times may be subject to change.  We will keep this list as up-to-date as possible and will post any updates (cancellations, movement to the alternate date) on this page as information comes to hand. 

If you would like to get in touch with us, please call 0800 769 372 (0800 POWERCO) or email us at customerexperience@powerco.co.nz.  Please quote project number IR 14278.
