Our Mission

To be a valued generator of electricity

KCE is a hydropower electricity generator, with five power stations in the King Country and Horowhenua districts.

Our vision is to transform our communities through energy, by focusing on innovation and new technology, relationships and sustainability.

Health, safety and wellbeing underpins everything we do as responsible essential service operators, and custodians of one of New Zealand’s most precious natural resources.


Our Values

We embrace these values every day and they're reflected in the way that we engage and do business.

Our Company

Our head office is based in Taumarunui, and our power stations are in Mangahao, Kuratau, Wairere, Mokoauiti, and Piriaka.

KCE power stations are located in some wonderful areas of the country and can be great places to visit - many parts of our schemes are available to the public, but there are restricted areas. Please obey all health and safety signage.

Stay up to date with the latest news and updates on our Facebook page.

We regularly share news and updates from our community and region, and interesting facts about our region and the history of our power stations.
