ENERGY MADE WONDERFUL WITH 100% RENEWABLE GENERATION.

Including geothermal, hydro and wind! Learn more about all the wonderful things we do at our generation sites below and join us for Energy Made Wonderful.

WAYS WE GENERATE.

Hydro

Hydro

We have 9 hydro stations on the Waikato River. These harness the power of water to generate on average 10% of New Zealand’s annual electricity supply.

about hydro
Wind

Wind

Our five wind farms generate electricity from fresh air, and we’re building what will be New Zealand’s largest wind farm (with more to come).

Geothermal

Geothermal

We operate five geothermal plants located in the central North Island that power base-load – this means they make power 24/7 ensuring a constant supply of power night and day.

ELECTRIFYING OUR COMMUTE.

ELECTRIFYING OUR COMMUTE.

In the last few years we’ve converted more than 70% of our vehicle fleet to electric or plug-in hybrid. Plus, we’re a proud member of EV100, an initiative to help reduce carbon emissions and make electric transport the new normal by 2030.

Learn about all the ways we get involved with e.transport and see how you can transform your daily commute for the better!

ENERGY MADE WONDERFUL.

How we make electricity with water

Hydropower or water power is mechanical energy generated using the flow of water. Watch our video to see how we turn the flow of water into renewable electricity!

 

How we'll make electricity from wind

The power of wind can not only be used to help boats sail and kites fly, but also to make electricity. Watch our video to learn how we use wind to create renewable electricity.

Geothermal
 

How we make electricity from the Earth's heat

Did you know that energy from underground can become the electricity you use at home? Watch the video above to see how we use the earth’s heat to make electricity.
