Call NZSE on 0800-99-88-11 for information or enrolment . People power Consumer power is leading electricity retailers to be more innovative in their pricing with at least one offering a big online discount to staunch the flow of customers to other suppliers. Consumer NZ chief executive Sue Chetwin says competition between retailers to keep consumers has never been more fierce and ordinary households are finally reaping the benefit. Rugby might be dominating our thinking but many Kiwis will be watching games on their telly at home, in their heated rooms, paying less for their electricity supply because they have taken the initiative and switched power companies.'' The success of the What's My Number' campaign means that over 162,000 consumers have switched power companies in the past four months,'' she says. That also means consumers have the power in their hands when negotiating with their existing retailer or a new one. The other beauty of the campaign, she says, is that it is free for consumers to visit both the What's My Number' website www.whatsmy number.org.nz and then move on to Consumer NZ's free Powerswitch site www.powerswitch.org.nz to initiate a switch or find out more information. The campaign, conducted by the Electricity Auth- ority in partnership with the Ministry of Consumer Affairs and Consumer NZ, aims to help New Zea- landers make more informed choices about their electricity suppliers. Our aim has always been to empower the con- sumer,'' Authority chief executive, Carl Hansen says. We wanted New Zealanders to understand how simple and effective the process is to switch electricity providers, and in turn increase compe- tition within the industry.''
