Locals to Receive Energy Bill Relief Thanks to Powershop Customers
Powershop CEO, Jason Stein said that after the devastation of the bushfires, Powershop wanted to provide an opportunity for their customers to support impacted communities.
“On the 10th of January this year, we launched the Power It Forward Powerpack, allowing our customers to support Powershoppers affected by the bushfires simply by purchasing power. This gave Powershop customers across the country an opportunity to help pay the bills of customers in bushfire affected regions.” Jason said.
The 'Power It Forward' Powerpack includes a 6.6c/kWh premium, which is pooled and credited (excluding GST) to the electricity accounts of customers who are in bushfire impacted communities.
“To kick start the fund Powershop contributed $20,000 to the pool and we have been blown away with the generosity of our customers. We set an ambitious target of $150,000 that we hoped would be achieved by the end of March. However, in only 35 days our customers hit our $150,000 target and to date we have raised more than $185,000.
“This will go directly towards the electricity bills of Powershop customers across 265 postcodes that have been impacted by the bushfires.” Jason added.
Powershop also has a range of support options available for customers impacted by the bushfires including putting bills on hold, account payment help and bushfire relief offers. At the start of the year Powershop donated $25,000 to the Red Cross and $25,000 to the WWF for their bushfire appeals and offered a $100 credit to customers who were volunteer firefighters and SES volunteers.
Credits are being applied to customers accounts from today 17th February 2020.
