About Transpower

Transpower owns and operates the National Grid – the high voltage transmission network connecting areas of generation with towns and cities across New Zealand. 

We keep New Zealand's energy flowing by:

  • transporting bulk electricity from where it is generated (by companies like Meridian Energy and Mighty River Power) to cities, towns and some major industrial users (like New Zealand Steel)
  • connecting with smaller lines companies (like Vector) who package and deliver that power to the doorsteps of New Zealand’s homes and businesses
  • managing New Zealand’s power system (as the System Operator) so that electricity is delivered whenever and wherever needed, 24/7.
