Media Release

A sudden loss of power about 7.45 pm last night affected more than 4800 Thames residents, Powerco says.

Network Operations manager Phil Marsh said it was not storm related as the weather was calm and there were no reports of lightning in the area.

Residents in Kopu and Thames were affected.

Mr Marsh apologised for the inconvenience and said all efforts were made to restore supply as quickly as possible.

When we contacted Powerco today for an update they said, “Our contractors have not been able to find the source of last night’s outage at this stage.”
