Tuahiwi work complete

MainPower completed work at Tuahiwi Road on Thursday 29 June.


MainPower would like to thank our customers for their patience throughout the work period. We appreciate that outages are inconvenient and worked as quickly and safely as possible to minimise any disruption.


The planned work was part of a larger project to ensure security of electricity supply to the eastern region. The upgrade will ensure both power quality and the safety of the community will be maintained.
