LATEST: About 10 protesters occupied the Auckland offices of Mighty River Power this afternoon.
A police spokesman said the protesters arrived at the power company's Albert St offices, within the ANZ Centre, about 1.30pm.
He said officers were negotiating with them and no arrests had been made.
"We don't just roll in there and arbitrarily lock people up, we're working with them and the owners of the premises to negotiate a peaceful resolution."
The group left the offices, on level 14 of the building, about an hour later.
The protest comes ahead of a demonstration planned for central Auckland tomorrow as part of the Aotearoa is not For Sale campaign.
Protesters plan to march up Queen St and hold a public meeting calling for a nationwide boycott of several energy companies and urging people not to buy Might River Power shares.
The protest is one of 15 events planned across the country.
