Hang up and call us directly on 0800 496 496 (Meridian Energy customer contact centre).


Harness solar energy

If you want to generate your own renewable energy, contact us – we can help.

If you generate more solar energy than you need, we’ll buy back the excess energy.

Our current buyback rate* is a flat rate of 8 cents per unit

*Rates are subject to change with 30 days’ notice. These buyback rates apply to all solar panel systems with a rated capacity of up to 10kW. If you’re interested in equipment that generates more than 10kW, talk to us about your options.

This rate does not include GST. If you are GST registered, we’ll need your GST number when you sign up.
