A power outage is being planned for Katikati today.

This will be the third power cut, with two unplanned outages earlier this week.

A cable fault is being blamed for the two outages, which left more then 700 people without power on Tuesday.

In a statement today, a Powerco spokesperson says customers affected by the cable fault in Katikati on Tuesdaywill be disconnected today between 10.30am and 1.30pm.

"The damaged cable that caused Tuesday’s outage has been repaired, and today’s planned outage will allow crews to safely reconnect customers to the network and remove the generators."

Live updates can be found via Powerco’s online outage map.

"Powerco thanks customers for their patience and understanding."
