About Electric Kiwi

Our Story

Electric Kiwi is an independent digital electricity company. As an independent, we’re here to give the status quo a shake. We believe Kiwis should be getting more from their electricity provider, while doing and paying less.

When starting out, we saw that electricity options were, in many cases, unnecessarily complex. Multiple discounts, joining specials and one-off deals clouded the real price. And though smart meters were being rolled out across the country, few providers had taken up the challenge to do anything smart with them.

We saw a gap for a company that could maximise smart technology to offer electricity that was cheaper, smarter and easy to manage.

How we deliver low every day electricity prices

We started out by custom-building our systems from scratch to ensure they were super-efficient and could capitalise on the benefits of new technology. We took all aspects of our business online, and then began creating ways for customers to benefit every day.

We also created the Hour of Power - a super easy way to boost your power savings every day.

Our service

We have a team of friendly power experts based in our Auckland office ready to help with any queries via Live Chat, social media, email or call-back requests. Electric Kiwi operates on a no contracts basis – which means it’s our job to keep you happy with low prices and awesome service.

Who we are

Electric Kiwi is part-owned by a small team of young entrepreneurs who saw an opportunity to combine their expertise in information technology and the electricity market. With backing from smart global investors who share our vision, we plan to keep the big power retailers on their toes by innovating and driving competition in the market.
