Waikato Racing Club – Te Rapa

Now you can support Waikato Racing Club – Te Rapa and it won’t cost you a cent!




This is an opportunity to raise funds to improve facilities for our members and club infrastructure.

We have partnered with Community Power, a new Social Enterprise company that shares it profits with us when you buy from them.

It won’t cost you a cent and just 100 members could raise $5,000 to $10,000 a year with all funds going to improving facilities for members and club infrastructure.

Over the next 10 years that’s $50,000 – $100,000 that could be spent on infrastructure improvements to improve the race day experience for our members.

Here’s how it works:

We all must buy our electricity from somewhere right? Well now if you buy from Community Power you get to donate a share of the profits they make from your account to the Waikato Racing Club – Te Rapa.




  • Simply buy your electricity from Community Power
  • 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 Waikato Racing Club.
  • And and it won’t cost you a cent.

And the best part is your gift keeps on giving, year-after-year, its not a one off.

“I switched my account. I now pay less for my electricity and $95 a year is donated to Waikato Racing Club.” 

“Its a great feeling seeing on each months bill that I am helping my club improve facilities for our memebrs and it isn’t costing me any more.” 

Please join me.” Name and title

How much will my donation be?

For residential households – 1 cent for every kilowatt hour of of electricity you use. For example if you use 8,000 kilowatt hours a year your donation would be $80 a year. Just 100 members at $80 a year each would raise $8,000 a year or $80,000 over 10 years.

For businesses the donation amount varies based on each meter set up and the amount of electricity used. Click on request a quote and attach a recent bill for a no obligation quote.

Frequently Asked Questions:

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 proving 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 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.
