Power Prices

Michael from Cashmere

I switched away from Flick over Winter to ECOTRICITY. After 2 ridiculously large accounts from Ecotricity I switched back to Flick and wish I had never changed. Even over Winter with presumably high Spot prices I believe there would have been big savings.
Here is a copy of part of an email …View more
I switched away from Flick over Winter to ECOTRICITY. After 2 ridiculously large accounts from Ecotricity I switched back to Flick and wish I had never changed. Even over Winter with presumably high Spot prices I believe there would have been big savings.
Here is a copy of part of an email conversation with Ecotricity. "...my Flick account has ...7 days usage at a charge of $33.43 (daily abt-$5)
This contrasts my current Ecotricity acct of $240.70 for 17 days service- approximately 3 times Flick's charge.
Prior to changing to Ecotricity my average monthly charges averaged $220. 2 months of Ecotricity bllls approximate $1440.(daily abt $17)
Costs/time period are not strictly comparable as (.your supply..) was during Winter whereas the Flick acct was for supply at the end of Winter and into Spring but the differences are too striking for season to be the sole explanation."
To their credit Ecotricity had the courtesy to reply in full to my complaint but their explanation for the huge price disparity basically boiled down to " We charged you so much more because Flick is a lot cheaper than Ecotricity"

Rotary International.

Rotary! You have heard of it…but what is it? Rotary International is a service club like no other. We serve in this community and thousands of other communities around the world. With 1.2 million members in over 35,000 clubs globally, Rotary is well placed to reach out when a positive outcome is desired or needed. Christchurch has over a dozen Rotary clubs made up of members just like you and me. People wanting to put something back into our community at many levels.

So what have we at Rotary Club of Christchurch South achieved of late?
This month at a weekly meeting (04/10/17), we made a donation to a local decile 2 school for uniforms to kit out their basketball team. No big deal? Maybe not, but without the uniforms the team would not exist, or certainly not be able to compete as an equal with other well-turned-out teams. Now they can.

And what of the past? What has Rotary achieved? How’s this for starters…

Locally:
Community donations, community building projects, public environmental seminars, student exchanges, youth development, school speech contests, charity collections, medical research assistance, vocational interaction and much much more.

Nationally:
Crippled children’s Society (CCS), First Health Camps, First Karitane hospital, Defensive driving courses, Kidney Foundation, Riding for disabled, Asthma Society, First mobile TB clinic, Milk in schools, Outward Bound, Ellerslie flower show!

Internationally:
In partnership with the World Health Organisation Rotary has played a major role (over $1b NZD donated) in the now almost-eradicated disease, polio. Peace scholarships, Group study Exchanges, Ambassadorial scholarships, Youth exchanges, Conflict resolution, Literacy and education, Water projects and much more.

Interested? The Rotary Club of Christchurch South meets on most Wednesday evenings, 6pm, at the Cashmere Club in Colombo Street, Beckenham. Please come and join us for a meeting or two and see if Rotary is an organisation that interests you. Call Alan Airay on 027 895 5409 or 337 0835 and he will confirm meeting dates. E-mail airay@xtra.co.nz if preferred.

We look forward to meeting you and extend the hand of friendship and fellowship in the name of Rotary.
