2012 Northpower News
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.

Two companies that didn’t feature in that report are Northpower and Kordia. Perhaps because they are owned by the taxpayer/ratepayer, perhaps because they provide electricity/telco services.
