Here is a way you can donate a recurring monthly amount and join HELP to support survivors of sexual abuse without  it costing you a cent!


HELP Auckland has partnered with Community Power, a Social Enterprise company, that allows you to donate to HELP from your existing spending on the electricity you use in your home or business.

Now you can provide ongoing, recurring financial support to help fund our work from your existing spending on electricity and it won’t cost you any more than you are already paying. You pay the same you pay now or less, you may even get to save some money yourself!

The donation comes from a share of the profits Community Power makes from your account when you buy your electrcity from them. Its a bit like being a shareholder in your own electricity company, receiving a monthly dividend which you then gift to HELP Auckland.

That’s right, you can now donate a portion of your existing spending on electricity to HELP Auckland.

And the best part is your donation is ongoing, creating a recurring donation for HELP Auckland from every monthly electricity bill.

Check it out, you have nothing to lose, you would be donating to HELP Auckland at no cost to you, you may even get to pay less then you are currently paying for your electricity and make some savings yourself.

Frequently asked questions and answers:

I currently receive a prompt payment discount, will I still receive this?


I receive a distribution company or energy trust dividend, will I still receive this?

YES. The distribution company or energy trust dividend comes to you from the distribution comapny or energy trust 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 providing 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 various 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.
