Bringing you a better way to buy power

We’ve made it our mission to provide great value power, giving Kiwis the ability to buy power direct from the market at wholesale rates the same way power companies do themselves.

Simplicity is part of everything we do, from our transparent wholesale pricing to our super fast online switching process. It’s so easy and we take care of everything for you; there’s no need to read the meter, and you don't even need to call to break-up with your old power company... we'll take care of that for you.

And the simplicity doesn’t end there. We also have no contracts, no paperwork, no break fees and no hidden catches. We believe in offering a service you’ll stick with because it’s the fairest way to buy your power.

We took on our first households in February 2017 and we owe a huge thanks to our community for supporting us on this journey. We look forward to welcoming new neighbourhoods to Power Direct as we grow.

Meet the Power Direct team

We’re a locally owned, New Zealand company based in sunny Nelson in the South Island and we’re here to shake up the industry and provide good, honest Kiwi service. We don’t believe in overseas call centres or long hold times... we're driven to provide Kiwis with the best service possible so you’re not ever left in the dark.

Power direct from the national grid

When you sign up with us, your power will come from the same place it always has - the entire New Zealand electricity network.

You'll be pleased to know that 75% of energy generation in New Zealand is from renewable sources which makes us one of the lowest carbon dioxide emitting countries in terms of electricity generation. That's got to be good for everyone.

Easy as changing a lightbulb

We take care of everything else.
