He whānui te wetonga hiko i Te Taitokerau. E 90,000 ngā kiritaki huri noa i Te Taitokerau i noho kore hiko i te rā nei, atu i Tākiwira ki Maungatapere, ki Porotī, huri noa i Whangarei, ā whakateraki noa atu ki Hukerenui, i te tairāwhiti hoki, atu i Mauitaha ki Motuhi.
Ko Transpower te kaiwhakarato i te nuinga o te hiko ki a Top Energy, ki a North Power hoki, ā kaare i mārama nā te aha te hiko i weto ai engari i mahi nui kia whakahihiko ake anō ai.
"We had an outage at one of two circuits that supply the area and that tripped at 9.35 am we had the other circuit back on at 11.15 am and that's when we restored our supply. From that both Top Energy and North Power who are the two lines companies that we supply they've been supplied their people and we understand that around about 12 pm everybody would of been back on," te kōrero a Geoff Wishart nō Transpower.
"Thanks for your patience and understanding as we've worked to restore your power supply this morning. We recently restored our network, and now both Northpower and Top Energy NZ are restoring theirs."
"It has been quite a morning but the Transpower outage has been resolved and power has been restored to our network," te kī hoki a Top Energy.
Ko te tikanga kua ora anō te hiko, engari mehemea e noho kore hiko tonu ana koe, tēnā waea atu ki a Top Energy, ki a Northpower rānei.
