Northcote Softball Club


Hi Andrew Poffley here Club President

If you could help us and it didn’t cost you, would you?


Northcote Softball Club in partnership with North Harbour Softball Association is delighted to announce a new fundraising initiative where you can help us and it won’t cost you a cent.

Sound too good to be true I hear you say, well it’s not. I have switched to Community Power, my donation to the club is $60.00 a year and I got a lower price for my electricity, saving me $220.00 per year!



Here’s how it works:

We all must buy our electricity from somewhere.

When you buy your electricity from Community Power you will pay no more than you pay today (and possibly less) athen you get to donate a share of the profits Community Power makes from your bill to your Club and the Association.

70% of funds raised go directly to your Club, 30% goes to the Association.


To help us at no cost to you, join today.

Thank you

Northcote Softball Club and North Harbour Softball Association

Why Support Us?

With so much demand from other sectors of the community, grants are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain for sports clubs like ours.

We now have a wonderful opportunity from Community Power to raise funds without it costing our members a cent!


What could these funds be used for?

  • Our clubs provide uniforms for all players and these need to be replaced every 3-5 years.
  • Help clubs provide other gear and equipment
  • Invest in skills development of coaches and players
  • Support representative teams and players
  • Run tournaments and events


“Hi, Trevor here, President of the North Harbour Softball Association. 

I have joined up, I am saving $55 per annum and Softball North Harbour gets $146 per annum!

Now, if you could help your Club and the Association, and it didn’t cost you, would you?

I hope you will join me, thank you.”

About Community Power

Community Power is a new Social Enterprise company.  That means they share the profits they make with your Club and the Association when you buy your electricity from them.

Community Power is New Zealand owned and operated and operates from the North Shore in Auckland.

Community Power is an electricity retailer, approved by the Electricity Authority, operates throughout New Zealand and can provide electricity to both households and businesses.  If anyone can provide a business bill for analysis then please do so.  The donation amount from a business account is typically larger as businesses almost always use more electricity than a household.


Frequently asked questions:

  • 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.
