What is an ICP number?

Your Installation Control Point (ICP) number is specific to your property and provides a way to identify your home on the NZ Electricity Network. If you’re unsure what your ICP number is, you can call us on 0800 Go Direct and we can check this for you or you can dig out an old power bill and find the ICP number on there. It’s a 15 digit combination of letters and numbers e.g. 0000038584NT84E.
