At Marlborough Lines we keep things humming – at home, at work, in town or out in the back blocks.
We own and operate the network that delivers electricity to more than 24,500 customers in Marlborough and we’re committed to providing a reliable and secure electricity supply to all our customers.
Based in sunny Blenheim, at the top of the South Island, we’ve been in this business for over 90 years, and are leaders in the operation and maintenance of rural electricity networks.
Our network is wide and diverse covering urban areas as well as isolated, rural communities, including the Marlborough Sounds, Molesworth Station (New Zealand’s largest farm at the top of the Awatere Valley), and the rugged southern Marlborough coast. Experienced, determined staff work night and day in our large electrical contracting division to keep the electricity supply secure.
All our shares are held by the Marlborough Electric Power Trust
for the collective benefit of Marlborough electricity consumers, with returns going back to electricity consumers through an annual discount payment.
Since 1996 we’ve grown our business and achieved substantial gains through investments in other companies in New Zealand including network companies and an electricity contracting business, and more recently award winning New Zealand wine company Yealands Wine Group
, based in Marlborough. Successful businesses giving solid returns to our shareholders.
We’re proud to be the company that keeps our Marlborough communities connected, and you can rely on us to be there providing the highest levels of service – no matter what.
