About Ecotricity NZ

Our Mission

To provide Kiwis and Kiwi businesses with 100% Pure Renewable power, and to electrify New Zealand’s vehicle fleet.

With your help we can also switch away from the use of gas in the home and office.

Our Energy

Ecotricity is the ONLY provider of 100% carboNZero Certified Renewable Electricity. We source our electricity from sustainable and certified renewable electricity generation including carboNZero Certified hydro and wind from the Monowai and shortly Roaring Meg hydro dams and Flat Hill Wind Farm.

We are also the leader in supporting solar by purchasing solar generated electricity from a growing number of our solar customers.

By supporting Ecotricity you are supporting the development of new renewable generation projects. By using these sources the New Zealand economy can grow without costing the earth.

Vehicles

We made sure our vehicle fleet embodies the same philosophy that our company does. That’s why in 2014 we moved 100% of our fleet to plug-in electric vehicles, but it wasn’t a hard decision to make.

If you bought electricity like you do petrol, it would only cost $0.30 per litre to fill our cars up.
It’s estimated we’d save $370 million every year on health costs, just by cleaning our air with the help of electric vehicles. Not a bad result – it costs us less, to keep New Zealand cleaner.

So what can you do?

Firstly, purchase an EV (electric vehicle). You’ll save money and you can just “refuel” at home – no lines waiting for petrol at the station.

Looking at the bigger picture, if 50% of vehicles in New Zealand were EV’s, the country would save about $2 billion in fuel costs annually.
