There are many causes of energy hardship, and finding a solution to this issue will take the combined efforts of many. We’re working alongside other groups around the country to see how we can help end energy hardship in New Zealand. This group includes:

  • the Energy Hardship Expert Panel
  • social agencies
  • the Government, and
  • the electricity sector.

Together we can make a positive change in this area for small electricity consumers.
