Now you can help raise funds for Andy and his family and it won’t cost you a cent!
How? We all must buy our electricity from somewhere, right? Now when you buy your electricity from us, you get to donate a share of the profits we make from your account to help Andy and his family.
You will pay no more than you pay today, you may even pay less.
Community Power is a new and innovative Social Enterprise company that shares its profits with the Community of your choice.
We do this by allowing you to donate in an alternative way without having to dip into your own pocket. You may even get to make some savings yourself.
We do this by being an electricity retailer, approved by the electricity authority, to provide electricity retail services to households and businesses throughout New Zealand.
Yes just like the big power companies, but without the expensive overheads. We use these savings to enable you to share the profits we make from your account with Andy and his family.
We will let you know on each and every bill how much your donation was and how much you have donated since joining.

I receive a Network company dividend, will I still receive this?
YES. The network dividend comes to you from the Network company regardless of which retailer you are with.
Will my power be interrupted if I switch to you?
NO, your electricity is never disconnected when switching between retailers.
Isn’t switching really hard?
NO, once you say “Yes please switch me” we do the rest. Other than proving us with a few details to set up your account thats all you need to do.
Where do you get your electricity from, do you burn Coal?
Great question!. We are very fortunate in New Zealand, approx 85% of our electricity is generated from renewable sources including Hydro, Geothermal and Wind.
Transpower manages the national grid and purchases electricity from the generators throughout the country according to the demand from consumers and the availability of water throughout New Zealand’s Hydro storage system.
When Hydro storage is low other forms of generation are brought on stream to meet the demand to keep the lights on.
Retailers don’t manage the source of electricity generation and nor can we guarantee to you where the electricity you use is generated from. What retailers can say is that most of the electricity you will use comes from renewable sources, its the same for all retailers.
