$85 Northpower Trust Distribution

$85 Northpower Trust Distribution


Northpower Electric Power Trust (NEPT) is granting their customers an $85 credit on their July/August power accounts.

Eligible Northpower consumers will receive a credit, regardless of which electricity retailer sends out their power account.

NEPT Chairman Erc Angelo says the distribution being paid out, is the customer’s share of Northpower’s profits paid to the Trust by Northpower. The NEPT owns Northpower on behalf of the beneficiaries, which are ultimately the customers.

“We are pleased to be able to pass on a distribution to consumers, which reflects the continuing strength and success of our lines company, Northpower.”

In addition to the distribution from the NEPT, customers have also enjoyed line holidays from Northpower, which has some of the lowest line charges in the country.

Northpower supplies electricity to the region through a number of electricity retailers, including Meridian, Genesis, Contact and Mercury.

“We receive constant feedback from people on the benefits of keeping Northpower in local ownership,” says Mr Angelo.

The credit is paid on each power installation (ICP) connected to the Northpower network as at midnight 8th July 2008. If for any reason customers do not receive the $85 credit on their July/August power accounts they should contact the NEPT information line on 0800 434 100.
