AS a passionate AFL supporter, Powercor CEO, Tim Rourke says it is a privilege to be involved in bringing the Essendon and Geelong football clubs to Shepparton to celebrate the 2016 NAB Challenge Country Game Match.
Powercor’s partnership with the Essendon and Geelong football clubs celebrates the contribution that regional communities make, including the game of AFL and the Powercor business.
Tim said, “Like many of our employees, I grew up in the country and so I am personally excited about this partnership, which reflects our grass-roots commitment to our customers living and working in regional Victoria.
“Powercor is proud of its track record in providing affordable, safe and reliable electricity that powers regional businesses and communities.
“We are a major employer in regional Victoria, including here in Shepparton; our people are the backbone of our operations and take great pride in delivering energy services to their communities.
“The 2016 Toyota AFL Premiership Season Essendon vs Geelong Country Game along with the Essendon and Geelong clash in Shepparton this weekend, is a great platform to showcase our business and the great work our people do every day to support local customers.
“Whether that is through powering local businesses and homes, working with the CFA and other agencies to keep our communities safe when it matters most, or providing energy solutions such as solar, batteries and power factor correction that help customers, large or small, take control of their electricity bills.
“Finally, we believe that for us to be the best we can be, we must give back to the communities in which we operate and thank them for supporting us.
“The Country Game is our way of saying thanks.”
