A large power cut hit New Zealand on the coldest north of the year so far.

Last night power was cut to around 20,000 households, mainly in the middle of the North Island.

Outages affected parts of Wellington, Kāpiti Coast, Palmerston North, Taupō, New Plymouth, Taranaki, Hamilton, Napier, Hastings, Auckland and Whangārei.

Electricity companies announced that demand for power had reached “an all-time high”, and they did not have enough generation in the system to maintain that demand.

Transpower, the company that distributes the power, asked New Zealand companies to reduce demand.
