TECT All Terrain Park is and has been generously supported by the following businesses and organisations.
TECT (Tauranga Energy Consumer Trust) was formed in December 1993 and 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. "Consumers" (approximately 62,000) are TrustPower account holders basically in Tauranga City and the Western Bay of Plenty District.
TECT’s income is mostly derived from its 103,878,838 shares, representing 33% in the capital of TrustPower Limited. This investment is worth approximately $752 million (at 31 March 2010).
In the past 17 years, they have returned millions of dollars back to Consumers and the Community, supporting thousands of people and good projects throughout our District.
On the winding up of the Trust (year 2073) the assets of TECT, which remain, will be distributed for the benefit of Consumers.
TECT was established under a Trust Deed on 21 December 1993 as a consequence of the Tauranga Electric Power Board’s Establishment Plan. On 1 April 2004 Consumers in the Tauranga district previously supplied power by Tauranga Electricity Limited were included as Consumers of the TECT following negotiations with the Tauranga District Council and compensation agreed upon at $2,500,000.
BayTrust provides grants to community groups serving the Bay, in order to help build, strengthen and enhance local Communities.
In the year to March 2010 BayTrust paid out grants totalling over $1.57m to groups serving Bay of Plenty Communities.
BayTrust has approximately $137m invested in a carefully planned, diversified way, both locally and globally. Returns from these investments form the Trust's income.
BayTrust also welcomes bequests from public-spirited people who wish to leave legacies for the benefit of Bay Communities.
