You’d think the website for an energy provider would have the current status of the network they use to provide energy. Because of our half arsed energy system Genesis are an “Energy retailer” who use another company’s network to distribute their product.
If you go to that distributor, UnitedNetworks which is a subsidiary of Vector, on the “Outages Centre” there is actually page with that useful information.
So why the heck, to be polite, can’t Genesis have a link to that page from their site?
Genesis Energy Home Page – Which is a useless load of promotional bullshit
Vector.co.nz - Electricity Faults and Outages- Major Faults
Which actually has useful information
