After working in the utility sector for years, we came across an opportunity to do things differently. Utilities such as electricity, water, phone and now internet are part of our everyday life, yet for many individuals and organisations they have become expensive luxuries – right here in NZ.
We’ve watched as costs have continued to increase and the inequality gap has grown. Many middle-income New Zealanders are struggling to make ends meet as living costs have increased at a rate income hasn’t kept up with.
This has created greater demand on community organisations, resulting in their resources being spread thinner and thinner. On top of this their running costs have increased, adding more pressure.
Through our innovative model we are able help households give back to their communities through simply joining Comtricity and selecting which local charity, school or community organisation working with us they would like to give a hand up.
Through reducing these costs charities, schools and other community organisations can focus on delivering their products and services into the community and create positive change, rather than getting bogged down with the costs of running the business.
