Thank you for your support.



Here’s how it works:


Ever thought it was possible to use your existing spending to raise funds for Kindy Kids? Well now you can. We all must buy our electricity from somewhere, now when you buy it from Community Power, a new Social Enetrprise company, you get to donate a share of the profits they make from your account to Kidney Kids.

Your electricity won’t cost you any more in fact you may, like me, end up paying less than you do now.

You switch to Community Power on a price match, that is you pay the same you pay now or less, then you get to donate a share of the profits Community Power makes from your account to Kidney Kids from every monthly account.

And the best part is your donation is ongoing, this is not just a one off.


What will the funds be used for?



Kidney Kids NZ supports 400+ kids with kidney disorders.          

This number continues to grow.

The support you give Kidney Kids supports our kids in need.

A few words from Nichola, hhbv, of Kidney Kids:

I am delighted to announce an exciting new fundraising initiative that won’t cost you a cent more.

Introducing Community Power, a new Social Enterprise power supplier with a difference – when you buy your electricity from Community Power you will pay the same or less, never any more, then you get toi donate a share of the profits they make from you account to Kidney Kids.

The donation amount is 1 cent for every kilowatt hour of electrcity you use. A household of 4 will typically use around 10,00 kilowatt hours a year, therefore the donation would be $100 a year. And the best part for you and us is that the donation is ongoing, its not just a one off.

The way you receive and use your electricity supply doesn’t change, only now you will be creating funding for Kidney Kids whenever you use electricity in your home or business. Yes we can create funding from business accounts as well.

Power of Together – You, Kidney Kids and Community Power.

Frequently asked questions and answers:

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


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 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 of 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.
