Orion expects to restore power to all remaining 3,264 customers without power in the Sockburn, Wigram and Hornby areas by 4pm today.
Early indications are that the power cuts in these areas this afternoon, which affected more than 9,000 customers, were caused by faults in the 33kV underground cables.
Orion wishes to thank customers for their patience during these outages.
