Generation and Development

We talk to our customers every day and their feedback has helped us shape the constantly evolving set of products, services and rewards we provide, giving them greater choice. Our use of data, insights and digital channels will be crucial to providing our customers with personalised service in a cost effective manner.

Over our 20 year history we’ve built a flexible and largely renewable portfolio of electricity generation assets. We own and operate 11 power stations and produce 80-85% of our electricity from our renewable hydro and geothermal stations. Our natural gas and diesel fired power stations operate to ensure the lights stay on for New Zealanders when intermittent renewable sources like hydro and wind plant cannot operate.

Health, Safety and Environment

Safety is our number one priority at Contact and we strive for zero harm. The well-being of our employees, contractors, customers, the public and the communities in which we operate is front of mind for all business we conduct and our aim is to have every person return home safely at the end of each day.

We believe that this is best achieved through visible and active leadership, continually improving our health and safety programmes, innovative communication, and empowering our people to be personally accountable and exercise individual judgement.

Our health and safety programme was the winner of the Excellence in Health & Safety category at the 2013 Deloitte Energy Excellence Awards.
