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.
Now in its third year, the Community Fund is open to community groups, charities, cultural organisations and schools that operate in the North Canterbury and Kaikoura region.
Members of the public can cast votes for up to three groups that they think are deserving of a financial boost. Once voting closes on Friday 1 September 2017, the $20,000 fund will be divided proportionately between the groups who receive the most votes.
MainPower Chief Executive Bruce Emson said that a number of groups have already benefitted from the annual Community Fund, including 2016 recipients, the Amberley Community Pool Society, North Canterbury Academy of Music, Sefton School and North Canterbury Riding for the Disabled.
“Since we introduced the Community Fund in 2015, we’re received almost 5,000 individual votes for a variety of groups, from emergency services, to animal welfare organisations. The great thing about the Community Fund is that it puts power in the hands of the community to decide what causes are most important to them and where the money will ultimately end up.”
