Community involvement

Orion is proud to support the central Canterbury community.

We invest in a variety of community programmes related to energy, education, arts and sport.

Our longest standing relationship is with Community Energy Action (CEA), a local charity that we have been supporting since its inception over 20 years ago. CEA provides insulation and energy advice services to those with the greatest need. Over 20,000 homes are now warmer, healthier and more energy efficient because of CEA’s services.

A recent addition to the stable of organisations and events that we support is EVolocity. EVolocity is an annual Christchurch event designed to stimulate innovation in the electric vehicle sector, and encourage the uptake and use of electric vehicles.  Working with high schools, the CPIT and universities, EVolocity encourages learning about the benefits of electric transport, and nurtures youth interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

We also sponsor the Canterbury Rams basketball team, the large replay screen at AMI stadium, and provide minor support for other community and industry initiatives.
