Welcome to NextGen Energy – New Zealand’s first and only national not for profit power company.

We can supply you with low-cost electricity, provide you with solar power systems, energy assess your home and offer energy-saving products and advice. Our goal is to save you money on what we believe should be an affordable, and equitable, necessity – electricity.

The company grew out of a number of solar energy related programs being developed in Nelson, when it became clear that the main power companies were really not all that interested in pursuing the development of solar power as an addition to NZ’s renewable energy supply.

This seeded the idea for the creation of a new dedicated and sustainable retail power company. One that was focused on growing solar power as a part of NZ’s renewable energy targets, and also focused on providing financial assistance to those struggling with ever increasing power prices.

Our goal was to ensure that the profits generated by the new power company were distributed equitably, and so our business for social good operating model was created to financially support local schools and charities.

We also wanted to help our customers become more energy wise. We are the only energy company that actively works with customers to use less electricity and therefore pay less and become more energy efficient.

So NextGen Energy was born – a power company designed to provide low-cost power all year round, and distribute its profits to local schools and charities that you, our customers, choose.

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.
