Orion is well prepared for the prospect of bad weather forecast for this weekend.
High winds and snow in the ranges are predicted by the MetService over Saturday night and into Sunday morning.
Strong winds can cause havoc with power services as trees and vegetation fall through power lines and cut power.
Orion will be monitoring the weather situation as it evolves, and has its crews on standby to respond to any outages, to get the power back on as quickly as possible.
Customers are encouraged to fix down trampolines, garden furniture and any large objects in their backyard, and keep an eye out for trees that might come into contact with power lines in high winds.
If the power goes out, customers can check Orion’s website for details including projected restoration times, or call Orion’s 24/7 Customer Support team on 0800 363 9898.
