Cape Palliser network renewal project

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

This work will require a series of power outages so that the work can be done safely.

  • Some outages are in multiple stages; your address should not be affected by each stage. 
  • Some outages have alternate dates.
  • Your retailer (the company you pay your power to) should also send you notifications of each outage you will be affected by.  

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 14257.
