Power outage in Cloverlea
Power was cut to more than 1000 homes in the Palmerston North suburb of Cloverlea about 9am on Monday morning.
By 4pm, about 340 customers were still in the dark, but Powerco restored their power by dinner time.
Powerco Network Operations Manager Phil Marsh said the cut was caused by equipment failure, causing further faults on the network throughout the city.
The blackout was not related to weather-related cuts elsewhere in the city and region.
