Powerco's response to Transpower request

Monday, August 09, 2021

Powerco is currently responding to a Transpower request for electricity lines companies nationwide to reduce load on the national grid.

Controlled hot water systems across Powerco’s electricity network areas have been temporarily switched off to reduce network load and avoid the need to disconnect any customers.

Powerco General Manager Service Delivery and Systems Operations, Karen Frew, says customers’ hot water systems will progressively be switched back on through the night once peak power load has passed and Transpower provides instructions to do so.

“Thank you to our customers for your understanding.”
