Orange Traffic Light Update
During the Orange traffic light setting, all planned outages will proceed as scheduled. We recognise outages may be difficult for some customers to manage, however, our priority is ensuring we can maintain a safe, reliable, quality supply of electricity throughout the network. If you are working from home, we recommend that you have a backup plan should a planned or unplanned outage affect your area.
Treat all lines as live during the outage period; power may be restored at any time. If you require further information, please call MainPower’s 24-hour fault line – 0800 30 90 80; to report an emergency call 111.
