PNG Power said the load shedding was necessary in order to repair ageing equipment at Boroko sub-station.
 
PNG Power said the recent introduction of NiuPower to the Port Moresby grid has led to load shedding exercise "due to lack of compensating reactive power to meet demand".
 
Negotiations with NiuPower to adjust their generator settings had resulted in a reduction in load shedding from two feeders to one per day, as well as reducing load shedding hours from seven to five.
 
Several other causes of power outages in National Capital District included someone being electrocuted while trying to vandalise a power pole, two major lines falling at Marianville Secondary and Erima Wildlife, and a technical fault on one of the Rouna Four Power Station.
 
Power poles have been sabotaged in the Siane area of Simbu Province, resulting in outages in parts of Kundiawa, Ban, Mt Hagen and Wabag.
