The power to make a difference.
Sun's Out. Hats On.
The sun is great for renewable energy. But not for kids without a hat. To protect kids from the sun, school rules say no hat, no play – so those without miss out on playing outside with their mates.
We’re here to help with that. Along with KidsCan, we’re proud to be giving kids the power to play by distributing bucket hats to KidsCan partner schools and Early Childhood Centres throughout New Zealand.
Powering Kiwi homes, farms and businesses
We power homes, flats, apartments, and baches across New Zealand. Choose us for yours. You’ll enjoy award-winning service and flexible plans from a power company that’s committed to doing good for people and the planet.
Running a farm is hard work. Powering it shouldn’t be. Our dedicated agribusiness team make it easy. And, Meridian is the only New Zealand power company partnering with all major rural suppliers, so paying the bills is a breeze.
100% renewable energy generation
All the energy we generate comes from 100% renewable sources – wind, water and sun. We’re New Zealand’s largest generator, making power through our wind farms, hydro stations and solar arrays. That’s where the magic happens. We believe renewable energy is the only way forward for the future of our planet.
And there’s more than just power generation going on. We recognise the importance of local communities to our operations by supporting awesome local projects near our wind farms and hydro stations through our Power Up community fund.

Turbine™ - brewed with certified renewable energy
We're pretty proud of the team at Garage Project. This year, they brewed a beer with 100% certified renewable energy from our Brooklyn Turbine. That's the bit we helped out with - and we're excited to be working on a certified renewable energy product for other businesses.
You can spot New Zealand’s first certified renewable energy mark on a bottle of Garage Project’s Turbine™ beer. Cheers to that.
Electric cars: Plug in. Charge on.
If you're looking for a power plan fit for charging your new electric car, or your business is keen on offering public EV charging to customers and staff, Meridian has you covered.
Electric Car Plan
Thinking about driving electric? We're big fans of electric vehicle (EV) drivers. So we offer a great plan that gives you cheaper power at night, meaning you can charge up for less.
Charging for business
There are so many benefits to businesses joining the electric journey. We're experts in setting up business charging solutions for your own fleet and the wider public.
Helping Kiwi kids in hardship
Every child deserves a decent start in life. So we’ve teamed up with KidsCan to support Kiwi kids in hardship. Since 2016, we’ve helped provide them with lunches, shoes and rain jackets - ensuring kids are warm and full with energy to learn.
Saving a species
By joining forces with the Department of Conservation and Ngāi Tahu, we’re helping save a taonga species – the kākāpō. New Zealand’s beloved parrot is endangered, and through science, technology and a whole lot of mahi, we’re restoring the heartbeat of the land.
