Power-saving campaign in 5th week

3:38 pm on 16 July 2008

A public campaign to avoid a power shortage will run until the end of next week.

The $2.5 million Powersavers series of print, radio and television advertisements is in its fifth week.

Major electricity users say the winter threat has now passed. But Transpower says it was always intended that the campaign would run for six weeks and it will not end early.
