Caring for our nation

Mercury Energy is owned by Mighty River Power and more than 90% of its generated power is renewable, coming from hydro plants and geothermal sources. (Almost 80% of New Zealand’s power overall is renewable.)

Mercury was the first company to power fully electric vehicles in New Zealand. They have a list of plug-in vehicle models for you to compare. A plug-in doesn’t just save you thousands on fuel – it also reduces how much expensive imported fuel New Zealand needs. You can even save 30% on juice for your plug-in vehicle if you recharge with Mercury Energy.

Buying from Mercury Energy also means supporting sick kids and their families at Starship Children’s Hospital.
