As the cyclone finally re-crossed the coast and headed offshore our crews were hard at work getting power back to the impacted communities.

We put in the hard yards so that as many customers could have have power available, wherever it was safe and possible to do so, by the Easter holiday. Having power back for the long weekend gave our customers in these communities some relief after a tough period.

Safety comes above all else and it was pleasing to report that there were no serious injuries among our crews or the public in terms of electrical accidents or our infrastructure.

We particularly thank customers across all districts for their patience in the week following the cyclone, and reporting fallen power lines and other potentially dangerous damage to the electricity network.
