How do I get connected?

How to Get Connected

As one of the few providers in New Zealand that can take care of your electricity and gas, getting connected with Genesis has never been easier. Whether you are switching to us from another provider, or this is the first time you've needed energy supply, we can help.

Couple of questions

It is really easy to get connected. Complete our online form or contact our customer services team on 0800 300 400. To get started, we will ask you for the account holder’s name, driver licence details and the property address. For gas, we will ask you if the property is connected to mains gas or if you will be needing LPG bottles.
