Blackouts and higher energy prices for New Zealand if rain won't come

It is has been reported that if rain will not arrive in the next few months in New Zealand, the population and infrastructure of the country will have to face two major problems. One is higher prices for the consumption of energy.

The second which maybe is even larger, will be a series of blackouts in the country. The tide is certainly out at Lake Pukaki. Storage levels across the South Island's hydro lakes are around two-thirds of what they usually are supposed to be.

Rain could rebalance the situation by rising the water storage levels so to rehabilitate power production and therefore supply major areas in the country with energy. The experts say that there is nothing to worry for the moment but the potential threat of blackouts remains, with the dry patterns forecast to stick around for at least the first half of winter.
