TECT (Tauranga Energy Consumer Trust) was established under a Trust Deed on 21 December 1993 as a consequence of the Tauranga Electric Power Board's Establishment Plan. It is now one of New Zealand’s largest energy trusts.
TECT’s income and capital is used to provide benefits to Consumers during the term of the Trust. Our "Consumers" (approximately 56,000) are Trustpower account holders basically in Tauranga City and the Western Bay of Plenty district.
In the past 23 years, TECT has returned millions of dollars back to Consumers and the Community, supporting thousands of people and good projects throughout the district.
