AMPED: giving kids the power to play  

Kids are incredible sources of energy. But they do need a few things - like nutrition, mental stimulation and exercise - to keep them powered up throughout the day. 

So, with help from our friends at Three and host Walter Neilands, we brought experiments, pranks, cooking, dance moves, survival tips, interviews, workouts and daily challenges direct to your living room during lockdown. And now, AMPED is available on ThreeNow full of rainy day or weekend boredom busters to keep the kids entertained, whenever you need.

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.

Keen to find out more about how and where we make the good stuff? We're happy to let you in on our not-so-little secrets: wind farms, hydro stations and solar arrays.

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. Last 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.

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.
