Plains Power is
about the people.

Here are our people

Plains Power is owned and operated by Pete and Emma, based right here within the Ashburton community.

You get to deal directly with the team, Emma, Gin, Nicola & Stevie, who all know what it’s like to live and work on the Canterbury Plains.

Plains Power saw a gap in the market for people who wanted to deal locally. To be able to pick up the phone and talk directly with the person handling your account etc.

Plains power ensure you:
  • are getting a fair deal
  • aren’t just a number
  • have a personalised, easy-to-understand power package.
