We are unable to update this page when there are large outages on our network, for example when an aftershock cuts power to several thousand homes and businesses. If a major outage happens, we aim to resume usual updates here as soon as possible. In the interim, please check our Twitter updates at twitter.com/OrionNZ or see our News and media page for general updates.
Earthquake damage may result in some power cuts in Christchurch over the coming months, particularly if we continue to experience large aftershocks. Please stay prepared to manage the occasional loss of power – keep a torch and battery radio handy and charge your mobile phone often. View the Your power supply page of our website for further information.
