Utility scale generation

Increasing renewable electricity to ultimately reach 100% clean energy needs investment in large-scale clean energy generation – in solar farms, wind energy, and hydrogeneration.

Enabling decarbonisation is a top priority as we safeguard our future

We’re here to support a low carbon future and work closely with utility-scale generators to connect their energy to our network (where we can).

Understanding our network


Injecting that energy back into our network requires detailed design, planning and electrical engineering.

It’s important you contact us early in your planning phase so we can work with you and your engineering consultants to provide information and requirements, specific to your project.

The process


The process from planning to implementation can be years, so it’s important we’re on the journey with you from start to finish.

Working with you, we’ll complete a review of your connection options and detail requirements you’ll need to meet before you can proceed. We’ll also outline if any network improvements will be needed to safely connect your generation to our network. We can also let you know if Transpower will need to be involved in the project too.
