PNG Power Ltd said this location had experienced power outage last night due to a fallen tree onto a service pole.

“The PNG Power field team responded and disconnected supply to the area, then progressed onto other faults whilst waiting for the fallen tree to be cleared,” said PPL acting managing director, Carolyn Blacklock.  

“Sometime during the night, it seemed that an unauthorised energizing of this connection had occurred, rendering the service pole dangerous.
