Top Energy has advised that a series of planned outages in Russell Township and Peninsula will be required on Friday 2 December to repair damaged electrical equipment following a car accident last Friday.

It is expected three outages will be required which will range in duration from 10 minutes up to 1.5 hours between 8:30am and 8.00pm.

This will affect Orongo Bay, Uruti Bay Matauwhi Bay, Russell Township, Tapeka Point, Long Beach and Russell Peninsula from Okiato to Taupiri bay.

It was originally anticipated that outages would be required for up to 9.5 hours, however Top Energy has installed temporary generation at Matauwhi Bay which will reduce the duration to 1.5 hours.

Power supply to Russell Township will be affected in the afternoon for approximately 30 minutes due to the use of the generator.

Top Energy Chief Executive Russell Shaw acknowledges the inconvenience the outages will cause and is appreciative of the assistance and support from affected customers, the local community and landowners.

Top Energy will post updates on and or call 0800 867 363
