To complete an upgrade which will improve the reliability of power supply to the Lyttelton area, the mains power will need to be switched off and the community powered by generators for around eight hours, between 8.30am and 4.30pm, on Wednesday 13 September.
Generated power can be less stable than mains power. We ask the community to please bear with us if the supply fluctuates during the day, and conserve power where possible to help us remain within the capacity of our generators.
At around 4.30pm there will be a brief outage of around 10 minutes, to switch everyone back onto the upgraded mains network.
In the unlikely event that there is an outage during the day, we will work very hard to get everyone’s lights back on.
If there is anything we need to be made aware of, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call our 24 hour Contact Centre, on 0800 363 9898.
