We're proud to be celebrating 90 years since the foresight and vision of a few enterprising Dargaville individuals led to the establishment of the North Auckland Electric Power Board in 1930.
Today in 2020, Northpower remains consumer owned and focused on delivering a robust and reliable essential service to our customers. Our approach to network investment empowers customers to make better choices on how they manage and use energy. We enable businesses to create value and growth in the region and contribute to improving our communities today and into the future.
We are on target to invest over $20m in network upgrades this financial year, and expect to spend a further $130 m over the next 5 years. Since 1993, Northpower and the Northpower Trust have given back $217 million directly to electricity consumers in Kaipara and Whangarei.
We also support and sponsor local initiatives including, the Northland Rescue Helicopter, Taitokerau Education Trust and Healthy Homes Tai Tokerau, and the Wild Kiwi. Along with employing locally, we are passionate about creating training and learning opportunities within our communities.
