Mercury Energy Power Plans
In 2016 Mercury Energy merged with Mighty River Power. They own and operate 14 power stations in New Zealand, all of them generate renewable power.
Nine of which are hydropower stations along the Waikato River and the other five are geothermal stations based around taupo. They also have smaller stations dedicated to wind power and solar power based in New Zealand. They are dedicated to making New Zealand a cleaner and greener country, and are proud of the work they’ve done since they were founded in 1999 as a State Owned Asset. They still have one of the best power plans while also providing the national grid with renewable energy.

Mercury Energy FAQ
Yes and no. Mercury Energy own and operate several renewable power stations, all of which service the national grid. However, the energy that gets to your house has come from the national grid, and has been mixed with all other sources of energy. It also varies depending on your location, if you’re on Mercury Energy Hamilton, your mix will be slightly different to Mercury Energy Auckland customers. So you’ll be supporting clean energy, but ultimately it will still be mixed with some non-renewable sources by the time it meets your door.
On all of Mercury Energy’s plans, there are discounts available in terms of getting either Mercury credit or Airpoints. They do some pretty impressive deals so go and check them out.
Mercury Go is the Mercury Energy app. You can complete challenges and earn Mercury dollars, which are the equivalent of $1NZD in Mercury credit or 1 airpoint.
