UPDATE 10.26AM: Power has been restored to more than 500 homes in Omokoroa.

In a statement to SunLive, Powerco says they are investigating the cause of the outage that affected 590 customers last night.

"Power went out just after 8pm and was restored later in the evening," says a spokesperson for the power organisation.

"A technical issue with Powerco's online outage map meant the information about the power restoration times was incorrect.

"Powerco apologises for any confusion it may have caused."


Power remains out to more than 500 homes in Omokoroa.

The power outage was first reported last night, when 590 properties were left in the dark around 8pm.

According to its website at the time, the cause of the outage was under investigation.

In a updated post this morning, Powerco reports that the cause of the outage is unknown.

It says it hopes to have the supply restored around 10pm tonight.

SunLive has contacted Powerco for more information and will provide an update when we can.
