About us

Major projects we're working on

Wellington Electricity continues to invest in our network, undertaking maintenance and upgrade projects to ensure we operate a safe, reliable and resilient network.

Recent Projects

Outside of routine maintenance, we often have a number of large scale projects underway. Those which have the potential to impact residents and businesses are listed below. Click on the name of the project to view a description of what it will deliver and how it may impact people in the community.

For a more detailed view of the network maintenance and development programme you can refer to the Asset Management Plan (AMP) for each year. The AMP describes our long-term network investment plans over a 10 year period, with a new plan updated and published each year.

Emerging Technology Projects

We regularly undertake pilot projects in collaboration with retailers, consumers and platform providers how how new technologies work, what impacts they have on our network and how best we can optimise their use. You can find out more about these projects here.
