Congratulations to Gavin and Colleen Thomas of One Tree Point for becoming Northpower’s 60,000th electricity connection. Andrew McLeod Chief Executive of Northpower visited the couple and presented them with a gift to celebrate the milestone.
“We are thrilled to be able to help facilitate growth in our district with our electricity and fibre networks,” says Mr McLeod.
As a locally-owned company we want to do what we can to boost the region and passing 60,000 electricity connections is a significant milestone.
Growth in the region has seen the rate of new connections in the past three years almost double with areas such as Waipu, One Tree Point, and Mangawhai leading the charge.
The 60,000 connections are made up of mainly domestic premises, with almost 50,000 domestic properties connected. Commercial connections make up the remaining 10,000.
