More than 3000 Wellington homes have been without power this morning.
Several power outages affected 3200 Johnsonville homes over a couple of hours, Wellington Electricity spokesman Hugo Armstrong said.
All homes were reconnected by about 10am this morning.
Equipment failures were triggered by the weather, he said.
It was the latest in about five power outages in the Wellington region over the past few days.
''The fact that there's been a couple of large faults in the last couple of days, there's not things causing a trend,'' Mr Armstrong said.
About 1000 homes in Upper Hutt lost power on Boxing Day and about 900 Titahi Bay residents were without power for about an hour on Christmas Day.
