Power restored to all in South Island

4:50 pm on 8 October 2014

Power has been restored to all South Canterbury and Otago customers who lost it during high winds overnight.

Power had been restored to customers from Omarama to Ohau earlier today but about 15 farms between Twizel and Omarama were without electricity until this afternoon.

Also reconnected by this afternoon were all the about 400 Aurora Energy customers from Wanaka to Alexandra who lost their power overnight.
