2018 Network investment programme

Counties Power undertakes a comprehensive network investment programme to ensure a safe, well-maintained and reliable network.  This year we're investing more than $30m on new network builds and upgrading existing infrastructure. While ongoing maintenance programmes are carried out across the network all year, some of the larger projects for 2018 include the below.  Please note that these projects may be subject to change.  A series of planned shutdowns are usually required to carry out these works.  All shutdowns are notified to customers via letter at least 10 working days prior.  You can also check planned shutdowns on our outages map found at countiespower.com/outages or get our new smartphone app now at app.countiespower.com in your smartphone internet browser.
