Eastland Network, together with Eastland Group, is working to ensure the Tairāwhiti and Wairoa regions have a secure, resilient power supply.
Protecting our natural environments, our waters and lands, is important to our communities. At the same time, our economy is booming and demands on power continue to increase.
Currently, we rely on a single transmission line with two 100kV circuits to supply electricity to all of Wairoa, Gisborne and the East Coast. Significant industrial investment into areas such as wood processing, the growth in new homes and businesses, and the forecast uptake in electric vehicles, are all predicted to put pressure on this power supply.
