PowerNet networks in the Palmerston area have been subjected to strong wind conditions with some customers experiencing power interruptions and network disturbances today.
PowerNet staff have been working as safely and quickly as possible to restore the electricity supply to those affected. The safety and well-being of our employees and the community are our first priorities when working on restoring electricity to the networks we manage.
With the current strong wind conditions some customers will be without power overnight and we apologise for the inconvenience this will cause.
We will be mobilizing additional crews in the morning to support the safe restoration of power to these customers.
We thank impacted customers for their patience during this busy time and will update further in the morning.
