More than 156 homes are without power in Auckland after two faults affected about 2000 households overnight.

Crews are working to restore the electricity supply to hundreds of West Auckland households after a feeder fault before midnight.

Power was also cut to 1316 homes across Clevedon at 2am in a second fault. That was repaired within two hours.

However the feeder fault affecting 615 Ranui homes and businesses is still being repaired.

Vector said field crews were working on the fault and electricity is estimated to come back on at 1pm.

The area has been without power since 11pm.
