New generator to provide additional back-up
We have just acquired a new generator for a part of the network that sits about half way between Blenheim and Nelson. We have a backup already in place but with the new generator our team will have a little bit of extra time to get to a site if there’s a power supply outage.
Final preparations for the new generator are being made and we are looking forward to beefing up the back-up systems to make sure the network runs smoothly even in the worst winter storms.
Network Tasman’s lines charges will decrease from 1 April 2019. This is good news for almost all consumers as it means the average residential customer’s lines charge will fall by $3.50 per month (including GST).
Electric vehicles are attracting a lot of interest in our region and it's great to see the community using the charging stations Network Tasman has installed.
Two new stations to fill up your car are being built in the region but there won’t be a drop of fuel in sight. Rather than the traditional petrol and diesel pumps, the two stations in Takaka and Nelson will be pumping energy.
