A major storm is currently affecting our electricity network. High winds are causing widespread outages particularly along the west coast and northern Auckland regions. The storm is expected to last until Sunday morning.
Everyone on our network who is experiencing a power outage must call us on 0508 VECTOR (0508 832 867) to let us know. This includes our northern network customers who previously called their retailer.
Our restoration priorities are to ensure that large outages are fixed first, then smaller area outages. We are also mindful that we must have power to hospitals, medical centres and other essential services. We also need to take into account crew safety and if conditions are unsafe we will stand crews down.
Once you've called us to log a fault you can follow updates on our outage app (free on smartphones and tablets), on our website here or follow us on Twitter @Vectorltd.
