Meridian Energy

Meridian Energy is New Zealand's largest electricity generator and is committed to generating electricity from 100% renewable sources - wind and water. The company generates approximately 30% of New Zealand's electricity from its integrated chain of hydro power stations on the Waitaki River, Manapouri (the largest hydro power station in New Zealand), and five wind farms around the country.

Through the Meridian and Powershop brands, the company retails electricity to over 275,000 customer connections, including homes, businesses and farms around the country.

Meridian also operates in Australia, with two wind farms and over 100,000 customer connections, and in Europe, where the Meridian subsidiary Flux Federation licences the Powershop electricity retailing platform and brand.
