Giving the Power back to Farmers

farmenergy is helping farmers reduce their power costs by giving them fairer prices and more control


Current State

Energy companies aren’t keeping up with farmers’ needs. Although a farmer’s needs are different from everyday consumer’s needs, most energy companies do not offer specific solutions for farmers but instead give them the run of the mill service.



farmenergy is dedicated to helping farmers reduce their on-farm costs. Harnessing the latest technology farmenergy can provide farmers with minute by minute information on their energy use so farmers can automatically control their usage and keep costs down.

Future State

The future of the agricultural industry will see New Zealand farmers with more control over their energy usage and the costs associated with them. They will have access to the wholesale energy market which has never been done before and they will have a energy provider which offers a true farming solution.


How it helps Farmers

Fairer Prices

Using our smart technology, we are able to open up the wholesale energy market to farmers all over New Zealand. What this means for farmers, is that they have access to pricing that reflects the costs of what they actually use when they use it and not an averaged cost created for everyday consumers. As farmers use most of their energy in off-peak times, such as summer or early in the morning, this means fairer prices and the chance for regular savings.

More Control

By using farmenergy, you enhance your control over the amount of energy you are using, when you are using it and how much you pay for it. We use real-time metering, apps showing usage & costs, data analytics & reporting as well as technology to remotely manage & control your site.

A Energy Partner

Unlike current energy companies, farmenergy is here to help you grow your business. We have a team of people who have extensive farming and energy knowledge ready to deliver honest advice and the best pricing on offer. When your business grows, we will grow with you.
