welcome to nextgen:energy

NextGen Energy is NZ’s first, and only, not for profit power company – one that gives ALL its customers great energy prices ALL of the time.

But that’s not all. NextGen Energy provides electricity to residential and business customers, and then returns all its surplus profits to local schools, charities and community groups.

Our social enterprise principles mean that, unlike others, we’re not out to make maximum profit from you, but to ensure that a fair and equitable price for our services enables us to deliver positive benefits to you and your community.

So whether you are a household, a small business, a school or a high-use manufacturing plant, we will have some of the most competitive rates available in your region.


Our price plans and bills are simpler, clearer and fairer, with year-round low pricing, no gimmicks and no minimum-term contracts.

So we don’t charge you more in order to give you a ‘customer loyalty‘ payment if you’re thinking of leaving us.

We don’t inflate our prices in order to give you a ‘prompt-payment‘ discount and we don’t entice you in with ‘great sign-up deals’ designed to tie you in to long-term contracts.

No-one likes paying their power bills, so make it worthwhile, knowing that you are also supporting our children’s future and delivering programs to those in most need.

NextGen Energy’s power generation is 100% renewable and carbon-free, supplied by solar and hydro power.

Our 100% price promise

We monitor prices from all the power retailers monthly,

and if we find a better deal for you elsewhere, we’ll let you know.
