The network has suffered a fault on the converter board at our 33kV ripple injection plant. As a result a significant part of the Whakatane, Ohope, Thornton, Matata, Taneatua and Ruatoki street lighting network is inoperable.
The Chief Executive Officer of Horizon Energy Group have been in touch with the supplier, and all things going well, the plant should be up and running by tomorrow.
Horizon Networks apologises for any inconvenience this may cause the community.
This is also a reminder to ensure you turn your headlights on when driving on unlit or dimly lit streets.
