7:20 pm on 1 May 2011

Transpower says power has been restored to 15,000 homes and businesses in the Far North after routine maintenance meant it was off for most of Sunday.

The outage began at 8am and affected the areas north of the Mangamuka Ranges, the Far North east coast, Kaitaia and north Hokianga.

Transpower was installing equipment to allow the construction of a second transmission line between Kaikohe and Kaitaia.
