Here for New Zealand

Our people, history and values are what define Transpower. Learn more about us here.

As a State Owned Enterprise, our Board is appointed by our shareholder – the New Zealand Government.
Our purpose and values are important in providing a foundation for our behaviours and interactions with each other, our customers, our stakeholders and communities.
We began as a separate State Owned Enterprise in 1994, but we've been the backbone to New Zealand's economic and social well-being for around 100 years.
We keep New Zealand's energy flowing by transporting bulk electricity, connecting with smaller lines companies and managing New Zealand’s power system 24/7.
