The home of renewable energy

100% of our generation comes from renewable sources - hydro and geothermal. This is something we are pretty proud of - the energy we generate is clean and green, which is good for New Zealand. It's a great way for our customers to contribute towards a healthier environment.


Our generation comprises of two complementary fuel sources – hydro and geothermal. Making our generation 100% renewable.
