The wild weather has caused power outages across South Canterbury

Thank you for your patience and assistance in providing us with information from your area, this has helped us tremendously in what is undoubtedly one of the most extreme weather events we have experienced for some time.
Please be advised that customers in the Badham Road Rangitata region, can expect to be without power again Monday night, as we have unfortunately had a worker injured in the vicinity, who because of his condition was airlifted to Christchurch Hospital.
Restoration that was planned for the rest of the network may also be affected because of the incident, so it is possible the power may not be restored across other parts of the network tonight.
We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter and we are doing everything we can to support the injured worker and his colleagues and family, as well as continue where possible with restoration.
