Powering up Taumarunui

We've kicked off a major upgrade to Taumarunui’s power supply

Starting mid-January 2024, we’re rolling out major improvements to the electricity infrastructure powering Taumarunui. The $1.4M investment will see the total replacement of aged assets, including power poles, crossarms, lightning arrestors and more, future-proofing the town’s power supply for decades to come!
