- Who do I call if my power goes out?
How can I protect myself from fluctuations and interruptions?
Accidents causing damage to electricity lines can result in spikes and surges of electricity. This may lead to a sudden increase in voltage, which can damage electrical appliances or result in a fire.
Take care of your valuable appliances such as television, computer and fridge by using surge protection devices that ensures the voltage is within the safe threshold. You can find these devices at most appliance stores around New Zealand.
