Alternative energy

If you're generating your own power, we can pay you for any excess power you generate and top you up from the national grid if you get low.

So how does it work?

If you're a Contact Energy customer and your local Network company has approved your connection, we can install a distributed generation meter for either less than or greater than 10 kilowatt (kW) output.  Already have an approved/certified distributed generation meter installed? Great! Join Contact and you can earn some bikkies by selling us your leftovers. 

How do I apply?
