Sign up with an energy retailer
Alpine Energy owns and operates the electricity network in South Canterbury that delivers power from the national grid to somewhere in the vicinity of your property boundary.
To connect and receive power at your property, you need to nominate and sign up with an electricity retailer of your choice. This is the company that you will receive your power bill from and to whom you pay your power bill.
Electricity retailers that currently supply customers on Alpine Energy’s network are listed here.
