Power out all day at Whakamarama
Powerco has restored power to all but 55 Bay of Plenty customers after a loss of supply at around 4.30am today.
Network Operations Manager Phil Marsh says originally more than 300 in the Whakamarama Road area were without power, but contractors have gradually reduced that number.
“We are still trying to find the cause of the fault but it is hoped to have supply restored later today,” he says. “We will update the web page as information becomes available.”
People can contact their energy retailer for information about power cuts or go to Powerco’s power cuts webpage.
