About Mighty River Power

The Company generates about 17% of New Zealand’s electricity. It operates the nine hydro stations on the Waikato River, five geothermal power stations in the Central North Island and a multi-unit gas-fired station in Auckland. More than 90% of its electricity production is from renewable sources. Mighty River Power sells electricity through multiple channels and retail brands, including Mercury Energy, GLO-BUG, Bosco Connect and Tiny Mighty Power. Mighty River Power’s metering business, Metrix, provides electricity retailers with advanced metering infrastructure solutions for their residential and commercial customers.

Mighty River Power is one of the world’s largest geothermal power station owners, and has a successful track record in geothermal development, investing more than $1.4 billion in geothermal development since FY2006.
