Here’s to the future

The energy transition is about moving from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

This includes leveraging emerging technologies that help us use energy in more efficient and cost-effective ways.

Here’s a few of the things we’re doing to progress towards lowering carbon emissions, and our customers power bills.


Cheaper off-peak power and half price overnight (11pm-7am). Plus an epic solar buyback.

Moving power off-peak can reduce your impact on the environment, so it helps your wallet and the planet.

Considering solar?

We've compiled answers to some frequently asked questions to help you decide.

Electric Kiwi customers get up to a $1,350 discount from our friends at ZEN energy.

Ideal to pair with the 12.5c/kWh solar buyback rate on the MoveMaster plan.

Hot water automation

We’re trialling new, exciting tech to automate hot water cylinders, and shift heating to off-peak times.

Off-peak times are more likely to be using cleaner generation sources. Avoiding peaks could also save our customers money with our MoveMaster plan.

We’ve kicked off with a trial, but we plan to expand access to this technology soon.

Battery optimisation

Batteries can be charged with solar or cheaper off-peak grid power. The stored energy can then be used during peak times.

Optimising how and when batteries are recharged could help power bills and the planet.

Green Meter

We’ve built a handy new tool to help you understand the ‘greenness’ of the grid at any given time.

Our goal is to make it easier to reduce your power usage at times when CO2 emissions from electricity supply are usually higher.


Charge your EV’s battery in off-peak times, and then use it to power your house during peaks.

It might sound like something from a futuristic movie, but it will soon become a reality.

We’re kicking off a trial using this cool new tech very soon. Watch this space!
