We were part of a very special and memorable event as we marked the upcoming construction of the new Maunu substation with a sod turning and blessing ceremony.
It was really pleasing to have so many local residents join Northpower sta , and other dignitaries - Whāngārei Mayor Sheryl Mai and NRC Deputy Chairman David Sinclair included - as we were welcomed on to the site by Kaikaranga Aroha Tito and Kaumātua Te Ihi Tito of Te Parawhau.
The new Maunu substation will support the ongoing residential and commercial growth in the area, while providing an alternative electricity supply to the Whāngārei CBD and Whāngārei Hospital – providing additional resilience in our network.
