We need to upgrade our kitchen to ensure we maintain our licence to provide food for our members and guests.

Please join Tony and keren, myself and others that have already joined, to help us raise the funds required.

It won’t cost you a cent, you may even save some money yourself like we have.


Here’s how it works.

We all must buy our electricity from somewhere. Well now when you buy your electricity from Community Power you get to donate a share of the profits they make from your account to the Club.

Community Power will match or better your current rates so you pay the same you are paying now or less, you may even get to pay less like I now do. Then a share of the profits Community Power makes from your account comes back to the Club by way of a donation from your account.

You won’t pay a cent more and the Club will be receiving a donation from your account every month. The best part is that this donation to your Club is ongoing, its not just a one-off.



How to join

Simply request a quote for your electricity supply by clicking here:    Request a quote

Community Power will analyse your account and provide you with a quote and details of how much your donation will be.

Switch to Community Power and your donation to the Club, along with any savings for you, will start from your very first invoice from Community Power.

Remember, you will switch on a price match or less, there may even be some savings for you.



What will the funds be used for?

All funds raised will be used for upgrading the kitchen to ensure we can continue to provide food for our members and guests.



Business Account Donations

Community Power can also generate donations to the Club from business accounts. Business account donations are usually larger than those from residential households because businesses typically use much more electricity. Simply   Request a quote   to see how much the donation would be and if there are any savings as well.



How much will the donation be?

For residential consumers the donation amount is 1 cent for every kilowatt hour of electricity used. For example if your household uses 10,000 kilowatts a year then the donation from your account will be $100.00 a year.

For business accounts the amount per kilowatt varies depending on the meter set up and pricing plan for the property and what rates the business is currently paying. Once we have a copy of a recent bill we can asses the account and determine the donation amount.



Fundraising made easy

“This truly is fundraising made easy. We all use electricity, you switch on a price match or less, then a share of the profits from your account comes back to the Club.

And the donation is ongoing, every time you use electricity in your home or business you will be creating funds for the kitchen improvements.

We hope you will join us.”

Thank you. Tony and Brad.

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.
