Disconnect for Safety

This type of disconnection allows temporary disconnection of your property from the network for activities such as but not limited to the following:

  • Roofing work, cleaning spouting, painting, water-blasting, tree trimming and erecting scaffolding if work is to be carried out close to overhead service lines.

You can arrange a disconnection by contacting Network Waitaki on 0800 440 220.

Please note that power will not be reconnected unless the householder is on site.

You will be advised once power is disconnected. Until you receive this advice, power is to be treated as live.
