A Powerful Way to Help Cure Kids

Community Power has just launched our most powerful fundraising initiative to allow you to fund life-saving child health research without spending a cent!

How it works:

Since we all have to buy our electricity from somewhere, why not buy it from Community Power and get to donate a share of their profits from your account to Cure Kids?

You pay the same rates you pay now, or less, so it won’t cost you a cent. The best part about donating to Cure Kids through Community Power is that your donation is ongoing, its not just a one off. This ongoing donation helps the continuous funding of vital research to improve the lives and wellbeing of New Zealand children.


“We switched our office account to Community Power. We now pay less for our electricity than we did before, then a portion of our bill comes back to us to help fund life saving child health research. You can do the same with you own electrcity account, please join us. It won’t cost you anything and now you will be creating funding for Cure Kids whenever you use electrcity in your home or business and you wont pay any more than you pay now. You may even get to pay less like we now do. Thank you for your support.” Frances Benge, Cure Kids CEO.

To find our more about Cure Kids


  • I currently receive a prompt payment discount, will I still receive this? Yes
  • 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’ll do the rest. All you need to do is provide us with a few details to set up your account.
  • Where do you get your electricity from, do you burn coal? Great question! We are very fortunate that 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.
