Community Support

Our community partnerships


Central Energy Trust Wildbase Recovery
Replant for tomorrow Taranaki

We value protecting endangered wildlife, including teaching children about conservation and how they can make a real difference to the world around them. That’s why we support the Wildbase Recovery Centre as naming-rights sponsor of the Powerco Education Centre. 

Replant for Tomorrow is a Powerco initiative, in partnership with Asplundh and Wild for Taranaki, to redress the vegetation loss and help restore Taranaki’s biodiversity.

Women in Engineering 

We know staying warm in winter can hit families hard in the pocket. So we’ve partnered with the Electricity Retailers Association of New Zealand to deliver EnergyMate to Hawera. This free in-home service, provided by the Hawera Budget Advisory Service, helps families manage their energy needs so they stay cosy all winter long.


By supporting the Women in Engineering Network (WEN) at the University of Auckland, we’re helping inspire and empower women to achieve their engineering aspirations. WEN is committed to increasing the number of women enrolled in engineering, with the long-term goal of achieving gender equality.

Replant for Tomorrow Wairarapa
Powerco Lights Up the Night

We’ve teamed up with Arb Innovations to bring Replant for Tomorrow to the Wairarapa town of Greytown.


We love a good, free family event. So we’ve got behind two iconic New Plymouth events – Christmas at the Bowl and the TSB Festival of Lights.
