Unclaimed 2017 distribution cheques
Patrick Adamson (pictured), the Trust Secretary advises that consumers have thousands of dollars in unclaimed distribution cheques!
On 1 December 2017 Network Tasman Trust distributed to consumers 35,012 cheques with a total value of $3,124,160. As of 28 May 2018, approx 2,000 cheques totaling $190,000 had not been cashed by consumers.
While 94% of consumers have presented their cheques, the Trust is anxious to ensure that all receive their entitlement. To this end all consumers who have not done so are urged to present their cheques as soon as possible.
Once cheques are six months old banks will not accept them, but the trust will re-issue them for up to five years from the original date of issue.
2017 was the last year that cheques would be issued. Any future distributions made by the Trust will be credited onto your power account.
If you have a stale cheque then please contact Alicia or Patrick at the Trust’s office at Craig Anderson Ltd, 270a Queen Street, Richmond, 03 544 6179, firstname.lastname@example.org
Network Tasman’s lines charges will decrease from 1 April 2019. This is good news for almost all consumers as it means the average residential customer’s lines charge will fall by $3.50 per month (including GST).
Electric vehicles are attracting a lot of interest in our region and it's great to see the community using the charging stations Network Tasman has installed.
Two new stations to fill up your car are being built in the region but there won’t be a drop of fuel in sight. Rather than the traditional petrol and diesel pumps, the two stations in Takaka and Nelson will be pumping energy.
