About Orion

Orion New Zealand Limited owns and operates one of the largest electricity distribution networks in New Zealand. Our network covers 8,000 square kilometres across central Canterbury between the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers and from the Canterbury coast to Arthur's Pass.

We are owned by the Christchurch City Council (89.3%) and the Selwyn District Council (10.7%) which means we are effectively owned by the community we serve. We take our community responsibility seriously and aim to promote safe and efficient use of electricity.
