Power trust, not a charity

LETTER

I am grateful for the ECT response (TGH 9/11) to my complaint about its failure to make distributions to us beneficiaries (all residents and ratepayers) who fund the trust with our power bills. I remember now the expensive survey of a handful of telephone respondents who were not even asked if they were connected to the electricity grid. Were those surveyed even beneficiaries?

Trusts such as ECT have householder beneficiaries. They have been gouged through the power bill for too long already. “Projects that create jobs and community and sporting facilities” are for charitable trusts or councils or the Government, not a community electricity trust.
