About Us

Safepower Services is a respected Orion network livening agent and electrical contractor with over 35 years’ experience serving Christchurch and Central Canterbury.

We specialise in connection services; both new connections and disconnections. We work on your behalf to obtain Orion’s approval and organise and complete any network alterations that may be required for your connection. We can also design and convert existing overhead connections to an underground fed connection.

We are also able to undertake metering work, such as installing new meters. This means we take care of the entire connection process, and we can do almost all of this in-house. This allows us to provide a consistently high quality of service to our customers as we have greater control over the connection process.

The range of services we offer includes:

  • New connections
  • Temporary power supplies in the Orion and Mainpower networks
  • Network extensions
  • Decommissions
  • Isolations and reinstatements
  • Livening and inspections
  • Overhead to underground conversions

The Orion distribution network extends from the Rakaia to the Waimakariri Rivers and from Banks Peninsula to Arthur’s Pass.
