Native Affairs - Power Play - Part 2

By Iulia Leilua

In Part One of tonight's investigation we heard from King Country whānau outraged by the way they're charged for the use of power lines owned by The Lines Company, with many whānau opting not to use power just to survive.

In Part Two of our investigation we look at potential damage being caused to economic development in the region, but first Iulia Leilua meets a whānau who are generating their own electricity, but still having to pay for the power line by their house.
