This is an increase of over $0.7 million from what was paid last year, and the fourth year in a row that this consumer discount, which is paid at this time every year, has increased.
“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 $254.15 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 $94.88 inc GST.
The discount will be shown as a credit on customers’ November or December electricity bills and will benefit over 61,000 current customer connections on the Northpower network. The annual Northpower Pricing Discount is made possible with the support of the Northpower Electric Power Trust, which owns Northpower on behalf of consumers connected to the Northpower electricity network.
To qualify as eligible, consumers must have an active network connection as of 1 November 2022. Full details of the eligibility criteria are available in our FAQs.
Since 1993, with this annual payment, Northpower and the Northpower Trust will have given back over $264 million to electricity consumers in Kaipara and Whangarei. The Northpower Trust owns Northpower on behalf of consumers connected to Northpower’s electricity network in the Whangarei and Kaipara Districts.
You will see a credit on your November or December electricity bill!
