The Lines Company is proud to keep over 18,000 customers connected to electricity throughout the King Country, Ruapehu and Central Plateau.
While most of our customers are residential connections, we also supply electricity to major industrial businesses like the iron-sands mine at Taharoa and New Zealand’s largest lime quarry at Oparure.
Our head office is in Te Kuiti and we have operational depots in Taumarunui, Turangi, Ohakune, and Mangakino. We have over 150 staff working across our region, with the majority in the field to maintain our lines.
We are a limited liability company, with a board of directors appointed by our community trust, Waitomo Energy Service Customer Trust. Our business operates in a regulated environment where revenue is controlled by the Commerce Commission.
