You know farming. We know power. Let's talk. 

We're not farmers - but we're damn good at powering farms. Our dedicated agribusiness team are experts in their field, and you’ll find they’re always there to help you get the most out of your power. What you won’t find round here is a one size fits all approach. Our tailored plans and pricing are specific to your farm and how you run it.

Backing rural NZ  

The agricultural industry is full of good sorts doing great stuff for our country, and we’re here to put on the gumboots and walk alongside them. That’s why Meridian is the power company behind New Zealand’s rural community.  

Dairy Industry Awards

Since 2006, we’ve been celebrating the best of the best in dairy with the New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards. We’re proud to present the Meridian Farm Environment Award each year, which recognises farmers (like 2020 winners, Sam and Karen Bennett) who are taking action to reduce on-farm emissions and waste. 

Dairy Women’s Network

Dairy Women’s Network is all about inspiration, learning, and connection for women in dairying. Members benefit from nationwide events, training, development, resources and the all-important annual Dairy Women’s Network Awards.
