Meridian Energy Australia


The core strategy of Meridian Energy Australia is the development and operation of an integrated energy business underpinned by renewable energy generation in Australia.

Meridian Energy Australia is a wholly owned subsidiary of Meridian Energy Limited (Meridian), the largest state-owned electricity generator in New Zealand.

Meridian first entered the Australian energy sector in 2001 through the purchase of a series of small hydro stations in rural New South Wales. In March 2003, Meridian purchased Southern Hydro and subsequently began development of wind farm projects. It also upgraded the company’s hydro-electricity assets in north eastern Victoria. Meridian Energy Australia sold Southern Hydro to AGL in October 2005.

Meridian generates renewable energy and supplies electricity to residential, business and rural customers throughout New Zealand. Click here for more information.
