Power Restored In Auckland

Power has been restored to all areas of Auckland Eastern suburbs that were without power earlier today. Up to 7,000 customers in St Heliers and 4,000 customers in Orakei were without power at different times earlier today, as Transpower sought to reduce demand on the in-service Penrose transformer.

Transpower is continuing to request that consumers are prudent with power usage to ensure that the Penrose Substation can continue to handle the load. Meanwhile work continues to bring one of the two out of service transformers back online.
