We are very pleased to offer this discount back to Northpower’s consumer owners, as we know what a difference it makes to so many households,” says Northpower Chair Mark Trigg.
Most residential and business electricity customers connected to Northpower’s network will benefit from a discount of $248.40 inc GST in November or December. The only exception to this will be those who have used between 1kWh and 2,000 kWh for the prior year, who will receive a discount of $63.25 inc GST.
The discount will be shown as a credit on customers’ November or December electricity bills and will benefit over 60,000 current customer connections on the Northpower network.
The Northpower Pricing Discount is made possible with the support of the Northpower Electric Power Trust, which owns Northpower on behalf of Northpower’s consumer beneficiaries connected to the Northpower electricity network. The Northpower Trust says it is again satisfying to see Northpower’s consumer beneficiaries continuing to benefit from the consumer ownership model.
Northpower Trust Chair Erc Angelo has welcomed the discount because it flows back directly to electricity consumers in Kaipara and Whangarei.
We know how much people appreciate discount because we hear from our consumers when we see them in the community. Despite the challenges we have all faced this year, the Northpower business continues to operate strongly,” says Mr Angelo.
To qualify as eligible, consumers must have an active network connection as of 1 November 2021. Full details of the eligibility criteria are available on Northpower’s website.
Since 1993, with this payment, Northpower and the Northpower Trust will have given back over $252 million to electricity consumers in Kaipara and Whangarei. The Northpower Trust owns Northpower on behalf of consumers connected to Northpower's electricity network in Whangarei and Kaipara Districts.
