Palmerston North electricity network project

Powerco is committed to providing you with a reliable electricity supply.

To do this, the company undertakes regular maintenance and upgrade projects on the electricity network.

Work is about to start in central Palmerston North to replace old underground cables with new ones. This will improve reliability of supply.

The major cable replacement project involves installing cable in ducts. Installing the duct will be labour intensive and affect traffic flows in the area. All efforts will be made to minimise the duration and impact of the work.

This is a multi-staged project that will take several years to complete. The first stage will focus on the area along Main St and Keith St and is due to be completed by Christmas.

We have installed a temporary overhead line to ensure your electricity supply is not affected during the project.

Please phone us on 0800 769 372 or email if you have any questions.

Powerco is committed to being a reliable partner delivering New Zealand energy future.
