New research shows women prosper in trade-related jobs
Electricity supply industry training organisation, ESITO, says a research project about employing more women in traditionally male-dominated roles shows women bring different skills to these roles.
The Electric Power Corporation’s (EPC) new Fiaga Diesel Power Plant at Aleisa was officially opened yesterday afternoon.
The ceremony started with the Prayer of Dedication by Rev. Siimamao Siimamao of Sēa Sinoti Apia, with the keynote address by Prime Minister Tuilaepa Lupesoliai Sailele Malielegaoi.
Two former Northland women have become the first in New Zealand to qualify as cable jointers in the electricity sector.
Dargaville’s Robyn Dawes, 25, and Whangarei’s Aroha McLean, 43, both now based in Auckland, are formally certified cable jointers after three year apprenticeships.
Along the way they have broken a barrier and say they want other women to follow.
Northpower has taken ownership of Transpower’s two 50,000 volt electricity distribution lines between Dargaville and Maungatapere.
The asset transfer also sees Northpower take ownership of the former Transpower Dargaville substation and those assets within Transpower’s substation at Maungatapere that are dedicated to the electricity supply to Dargaville from Maungatapere.
The summer issue of Consumerline features Northpower's first electric car - which has been doing plenty of trips to our Wairua Hydro Power Station at Titoki - along with the annual Electricity Rescue Helicopter Appeal (more than $100,000 was raised through public donations in late 2012), our latest Line Holiday, the NEPT's $80 distribution to Northpower consumers, plus our hard working Network team doing a great job maintaining our electricity network in Kaipara and Whangarei!
More than $5m is headed the way of around 50,000 Northpower consumers over the next few weeks. Included is a $1m industry rebate.
It is the second payout in three months and takes the total amount gifted this summer to more than $9m, after the Northpower Electric Power Trust (NEPT) gave every Northpower consumer in Kaipara and Whangarei an $80 tax free credit in December.
An early Christmas present is heading the way of electricity consumers in Kaipara and Whangarei thanks to an $80 tax free credit on December power accounts.
The distribution is courtesy of the Northpower Electric Power Trust (NEPT).
It is allocated to the 54,900 power installation control points (ICPs) connected to the Northpower network as at midnight on Tuesday, December 18, 2012.
NEPT Chairman Erc Angelo says customers who do not receive the $80 credit on their next power account should contact the NEPT information line on 0800 434 100.
