Frederick Street cable upgrade
As Wellington continues to grow, we're preparing for the future by ensuring that our electricity supply can meet demand.
To do this, we’re replacing our main supply cables from the National Grid to our Frederick Street substation. From here, around 8,000 properties across several central suburbs are supplied with electricity.
As well as providing additional capacity to cope with increased power needs, the new cables will be more resilient against earthquakes too.
The project commences in April 2021. Find out more about what we’re doing here.
