Our purpose: Clean energy for a fairer and healthier world

We believe that by doing the right thing by people and the planet, we’re working to build a better future for our customers, communities, and environment.

What we do

All the electricity we generate comes from 100% renewable sources – wind, water and sun. Always will be. All the electricity that we supply to our customers comes from the electricity grid, which mixes electricity supplied from both renewable and non-renewable sources.

Listed on both the NZX and ASX, the Meridian Group is one of New Zealand’s largest listed companies and employs around 1,000 people across New Zealand and Australia. The New Zealand Government is our majority shareholder at 51%.

Generating electricity

All the electricity we generate comes from 100% renewable sources – wind, water and sun. We’re New Zealand’s largest electricity generator through our five wind farms, seven hydro power stations, and commercial solar arrays.

In Australia, we own two wind farms and three hydro power stations (Meridian Energy Australia).

 

Retailing electricity

The Group sells electricity to our customers through three brands – Meridian and Powershop in New Zealand, and Powershop in Australia. 

Energy software and dam management

We have an energy retailing software company, Flux Federation, that operates in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom. It’s also licensed to nPower in the UK.

We also own Dam Safety Intelligence, a dedicated group of engineers, scientists and geologists focused on the safe management of dams and other water infrastructure.

Our business model: how we create value

We own hydro power stations and wind farms that generate the electricity we sell into the wholesale market. We also purchase back electricity from the wholesale market to sell directly to customers.
