Our energy is generated from 100% renewable sources, including geothermal, hydro and soon wind. We’re proud to work with some of our wonderful customers to help them generate solar energy too.
We have 9 hydro stations on the Waikato River. These stations harness the power of water to generate approximately 10% of NZ's annual energy supply.
Our solar farm and R+D Centre sits on the site of the former gas-fired Southdown power station to help us learn more about this energy source.
We’ve started building our first wind farm at Turitea (just outside of Palmerston North), as we work towards New Zealand’s even more sustainable future.
We have 5 geothermal stations across the central North Island. Base-load geothermal runs at full capacity about 95% of the time.
