Trustpower generates a large amount of New Zealand’s electricity — powering numerous homes and businesses nationwide. We also generate electricity in Australia. We have a strong focus on sustainable generation using hydroelectric power stations. We are continually seeking to expand our generation network, as well as make efficiencies, and minimise environmental impacts.

New Zealand

In New Zealand, we operate 38 hydro power stations across 19 hydroelectric power schemes. We have one diesel power station, which we run only when needed.

Our focus has been on sustainable forms of generation, right from 1993, when Trustpower was founded. Today, this focus supports the New Zealand Government’s long-term Energy Strategy, which commits to a target of 90% of New Zealand’s electricity supply coming from renewable sources by 2025. At present it’s around 70%.

Most simply, sustainability is a responsible approach, locally, nationally, and globally. You’ll find more about our Generation Philosophy and Environmental Policy here.

Australia

In July 2013 Green State Power Pty Ltd (GSP) was established by the NSW Government to own and operate a portfolio of renewable generation assets including hydro generators at Hume, Burrinjuck and Keepit, with a view to selling these assets in the future. In 2014 Trustpower successfully acquired these assets.

This gives Trustpower a presence in New South Wales.
