Northpower Ninjas

Most of you are aware that our very first working relationship, before it was a working relationship, was with Northpower.

Before the trust was formed.  Before the first public charger had been installed.  Before most people in New Zealand thought that Electric Vehicle ownership and use was even a remote possibility, Steve and I were trundling up to Whangarei regularly to meet with Northpower and the Northland district council.

Because we have been on this journey together since the very start, we are not only working together we have become very good friends.

I don’t have too much else to say on the matter at the moment.  Just a huge and heartfelt thank you to the entire team.  Especially Graham Dawson the network GM. Russell Watson who is one of the most intelligent, patient, upstanding and wonderful human beings on the planet.  He’s inspirational not only with his can do attitude and limitless patience, but also for his integrity, calmness and enthusiasm.

I’ll thank many more champions in the next blog.  For now, I will leave you with a few pictures of our wonderful (albeit quick) visit to Northpower on our way to Waitiki Landing and eventually Cape Reinga.
