Welcome to Meridian

Giving you the power to make a difference

Putting the power in your hands

We get it – one size doesn’t fit all. Power your home on your terms with a plan that fits you. Our Fixed Rate Plan offers you price certainty^ so you can budget with confidence. If you’d like some wriggle room, our Simple Flexi (Freedom) Plan gives you flexibility to make changes as life changes. No matter the option, we’ve got something to sweeten the deal.

    Freedom and flexibility 

    Need more flexibility? Our Simple Flexi (Freedom) Plan has a variable rate, so you’re not locked into a fixed term contract and there’s also no penalties. This means your power rates will change as energy prices change. You could save money if energy prices drop but, if they rise, so will your electricity rates. We’ll sweeten the deal every month with a $10 account credit for the first 12 months when you join today.^

    Certainty and peace of mind

    If you’re looking for peace of mind and stability, our two-year fixed-rate plan is right for you. You’ll pay the same rate for your daily power and usage rates for the length of your plan and won’t be hit with any surprise rate increases.** The sweetener? A $200 welcome credit to get you started.*

^ Terms, conditions and eligibility criteria apply. If you leave before your first 12 months, you will not be entitled to any remaining account credit.

* Terms, conditions, break fee and eligibility criteria apply.

** Only government and regulatory changes like GST and the Electricity Authority levy can change. Fixed pricing applies when your price category, capacity and metering configuration stays the same and no new network charge is introduced. If any of these changes, and we can no longer offer the plan you are on, we’ll give you prior notice and help you find a new plan. Read the full Terms and Conditions.

Kākāpō Recovery Programme

Kākāpō are a taonga species. Sadly, with just over 200 left, theses nocturnal, flightless parrots sit firmly on the endangered species list.
We work with the Department of Conservation (DOC) and Ngāi Tahu to help fund research and initiatives. The Kākāpō Recovery Programme aims to take the kākāpō off the endangered list and bring them back to their former glory.
