People who went without electricity due to Monday night’s power cuts are advised they have a legal right to compensation, RNZ reports. Transpower has apologised after it asked lines companies to cut power in some areas to handle all-time high demands for electricity, combined with insufficient generation, on one of the coldest nights of the year. While Mercury said it would put credit on the accounts of affected customers, other power companies are yet to confirm any reimbursement.
