Opunake Hydro is a local electricity supplier in the Taranaki area generating power from a 90-year-old hydro scheme located in Opunake township, and supplemented by our gas-fired peaker generators that we run whenever cheaper renewable sources are unavailable. We use these generators to maintain our ability to supply throughout the year even if it is dry.

Our electricity is competitively priced, low on carbon and comes with all the benefits of an online offering.

We recognise that price is important, which is why we are fully transparent with our price plans. Plus, we provide an innovative price comparison tool so you can compare us with other suppliers in Taranaki.
