About Us 

Electricity Ashburton Limited trades as EA Networks. It is a locally owned co-operative network company based in Mid-Canterbury, New Zealand.

EA Networks owns and operates the region's electricity distribution network, an advanced fibre optic communications network and is the cornerstone investor in the Barrhill Chertsey Irrigation scheme. EA Networks also operates a successful contracting business that supports our electricity and fibre networks whilst also providing services to residents and businesses across the region and beyond.

Being locally owned and operated, EA Networks has strong ties to the community. Whilst focussing on infrastructure investments that provide economic benefit to the region, the company also supports community projects.

EA Networks is proud to support our local schools and extended its fibre optic network to reach all Ministry of Education listed schools across the district whilst also providing each with free access to the network.

EA Networks also invested in the naming rights to Ashburton’s swimming and recreation facility, which opened in May 2015.

We are passionate about our business and our region, and are focussed on delivering safe and reliable network infrastructure that supports our community and the local economy.
