About WEL Networks

At WEL Networks we're delivering innovative energy solutions which enable our communities to thrive, and keep the lights on 24/7.

Based in Hamilton, we play an essential role in the region's economic and social development by identifying and investing in new technologies that will modernise our network and future-proof our region. We're excited to be broadening our horizons as we diversify from a traditional lines company into a multi-utility.
