For over 100,000 New Zealanders, having to choose between electricity, food or petrol is an everyday reality. Reweti Kohere of The Spinoff speaks with Nau Mai Rā CEO Ezra Hirawani about his mission to alleviate ‘power poverty’. By donating a portion of their power bill to local marae, community initiatives and a pooled “whānau fund” to help those struggling to keep on top of their power bill, some 2,000 Nau Mai Rā customers have given back about $45,000.
