Canterbury based electricity distribution company Orion provides energy to remote rural areas, regional towns and the city of Christchurch. With a strong vision to act ethically and transparently in relation to managing their own carbon emissions, they encourage the benefits of carbon-free travel when it comes to Canterbury’s transport sustainability model.

With the intention of providing a healthier environment and managing the social effect of their business, Orion assists others in using their network to reduce their own emissions – whether through the use of EVs or electrical alternatives through to awareness around fossil fuel generation.

Having installed 17 new electric vehicle public charging stations in strategic locations around the country since 2017 and with a total network of 25 EV stations so far, they intend to give drivers more confidence when travelling long distances around our beautiful country, Aotearoa.
