KCE named as a finalist in the Energy Excellence Awards

Electricity generator and retailer, King Country Energy (KCE), has been named as a finalist in The Deloitte Energy Excellence Awards.

KCE is one of three electricity retailers named as finalists in the Retailer of the Year category. The awards, now in their fourth year, will be held in Auckland at the Langham Hotel on 14 August.

The awards recognise achievement and excellence in the New Zealand energy sector. Upon announcing the finalists, chairman of the judging panel, Richard Westlake, said the calibre of entries was extremely high and the finalist selection process had been a tough one: "The judging panel was impressed by the overall quality of the entries and our task certainly hasn't been easy."1

KCE Chief Executive Officer, Rob Foster, said it was great to be recognised as one of the best retailers in the country.

“We are the only power company in New Zealand with less than 18,000 customers that has survived deregulation and emerged as a strong generator and retailer with a local service model.

“Our staff members are fiercely passionate about our company’s King Country roots and the people we serve and I’m really proud of them. Being named as a finalist for this award is made possible because of the great work they do each day.

“We’re all excited to be recognised as one of the best retailers in New Zealand and will anxiously await the winner announcement on 14 August,” he said.

The company was judged on its award application which outlined how, in the current competitive environment, it was focusing on driving down costs and adding new components to its distinctive and focused personalised service model.
