Wellington Electricity

Wellington Electricity is an electricity distributor - our core business is to manage the poles, wires and equipment that safely deliver electricity to about 166,000 homes and businesses in the Wellington, Hutt Valley and Porirua regions of New Zealand.

Alongside our residential customers, major customers with significant electricity use include:

  • NZ Parliament
  • Major infrastructure providers such as Wellington Airport and Centreport
  • Wellington, Kenepuru and Hutt Hospitals
  • Large education institutions such as Victoria University and Massey University
  • Regional and local authorities, including council infrastructure such as water and wastewater treatment and pumping stations, as well as provision of the streetlight network

The Wellington CBD is the largest business and retail centre for the region and includes the head offices for most government departments, although there are also significant retail centres in Lower Hutt, Upper Hutt and Porirua.

There are also a number of network security-sensitive customers such as Weta Digital, Datacom and Department of Corrections.


Before electricity reaches you it goes through a number of stages.



 In order for us to provide a highly reliable and safe electricity distribution network, we need highly talented and collaborative people working with us.  We offer a competitive remuneration package and provide ongoing training for the diverse and challenging roles we offer.  We have a strong community focus and a robust Health and Safety profile.
