Costs of Electricity

Brian from Papakura

Boy are we paying for power here in NZ. Just checked my latest statement, $0.3123/kWh. I was just watching Ecotricity on You Tube and the presenter was going over the costs of running her EV in the USA. She pays more for her electricity as it comes from renewable sources in the US.

I was just watching Ecotricity on You Tube and the presenter was going over the costs of running her EV in the USA. She pays more for her electricity as it comes from renewable sources in the US. The cost, $0.115/kwh, 11.5 cents versus 31 cents here. Why is power so expensive here in NZ?

Covid

I was in the Countdown Supermarket at Roselands tonight and was astonished to have a checkout operator who was obviously quite sick.

She was coughing, had an obvious elevated temperature, clammy face and hair etc. I told her she shouldn't be at work. She said her boss wouldn't let her off working and another lady from the control counter agreed. I rang the Covid Healthline after but they could do nothing, even suggested I ring the Police. I don't want covid, at all. She should at least have had a mask on. Hopefully it is just a bad head cold, maybe the flu, but I don't want that either.

The Counties Manukau region is currently experiencing high volumes of people going to hospital Emergency Departments which is causing long wait times.

The number of people coming to the ED at Middlemore Hospital for non-emergencies is rising and we need our communities support to keep the Emergency Department free for those who need it most.

ED’s are there primarily to treat those whose condition threatens their life or limb.

Unless someone is experiencing an emergency, we are asking them to visit their local GP or Urgent Care clinic.
This will enable our busy ED staff to focus their time and resources on patients who have life threatening emergencies.

Help us to help you, your friends, your whaanau and our community.

Let’s keep the ED Free!

The weird and wonderful things about online trading

Hi Auckland,

Hi Auckland,

What was your best purchase on an online marketplace, like Trade Me or Neighbourly?

A 1950s aircraft fuselage could be yours after a Waiuku resident listed their "old warbird" on Trade Me.

The Royal New Zealand Bristol Freighter flew as part of the Royal New Zealand Air Force during the Vietnam War. It was then purchased and shipped to Whenuapai-Ardmore in 1978 and then sold on to a Waiuku local. The sellers purchased the land at a later date, and thus the plane.

The listing starts at $18,000 and at time of publishing, has been added to almost 900 users' watchlists.
