Contact confirmed as essential business

Contact Energy Limited (“CEN”) is committed to supporting the actions of the NZ Government in restricting the spread of Covid-19, and fulfil its obligations as an essential business and lifeline utility for New Zealand.

CEO Mike Fuge said Contact Energy was classed as an essential business under the new Covid-19 rules announced by the Government this week. “At Alert Level 4, we will continue to deliver services, and do so in a way that limits or eliminates the risk of spreading Covid-19.”

Mr Fuge said it was humbling to see the dedication of everyone working hard to keep New Zealand running during a very challenging period. “I’d like to thank everyone for their massive efforts to date, from Contact people to all of our stakeholders and the energy industry as a whole. We appreciate your ongoing support, resilience and dedication to maintaining the energy supply for New Zealanders.”
