About Mighty River Power Limited

The Company generates about 17% of New Zealand’s electricity. It operates the nine hydro stations on the Waikato River, five geothermal power stations in the Central North Island and a multi-unit gas-fired station in Auckland. More than 90% of its electricity production is from renewable sources. Mighty River Power sells electricity through multiple channels and retail brands, including Mercury Energy, GLO-BUG, Bosco Connect and Tiny Mighty Power. Mighty River Power’s metering business, Metrix, provides electricity retailers with advanced metering infrastructure solutions for their residential and commercial customers.

Lake Taupo has water flowing into it from many sources, but only one river flows out – the Mighty Waikato, New Zealand’s longest river. Lake Taupo provides the primary storage for the Waikato Hydro System. Just 1% of the lake’s total volume – a range of up to 1.4 meters – is available for Mighty River Power as it flows down the river through the hydro turbines and for other users, including potable supply for Hamilton and Auckland, and agricultural users who abstract water for irrigation and other purposes.
Mercury Energy is Mighty River Power’s largest retail brand and accounts for over 94% of its end-user electricity sales. Mercury Energy is one of the longest established major retail electricity brands in New Zealand.
Globug is a prepay service that utilises smart metering to allow residential customers to monitor their electricity use and to align their expenditure with their income, thereby managing their debt.
Tiny Mighty Power
The Tiny Mighty Power brand was launched in 2009 out of the Bosco Connect business, to retail electricity into smaller regional towns.
Bosco Connect is a niche utility retailer supplying electricity to apartment customers in the Auckland and Wellington central business districts.
Metrix provides residential and commercial metering equipment in the greater Auckland area. Metrix is Auckland’s largest meter asset owner and supplies services to most electricity retailers.
