The independent electricity and gas retailer is making finding a great, clean place to swim easy for locals and tourists again for the 2016-17 swim season.
Swim Guide is thrilled to announce that Pulse Energy is returning for the third time as the Swim Guide sponsor for New Zealand. Thanks to Pulse Energy’s efforts, the most current recreational water quality information for over 700 New Zealand swimming spots is accessible from the Swim Guide smartphone app and website.
In 2014, Pulse Energy brought Swim Guide to New Zealand, as part of the independent electricity and gas retailer’s contribution to the environment and local communities. Pulse Energy created water quality information for all 600 of the country’s monitored beaches readily available for the public. Gary Holden, Pulse Energy’s Chief Executive Officer, and long-time Lake Ontario Waterkeeper supporter, spearheaded the move.
Swimming season in New Zealand runs all summer, from late November to March. Pulse Energy staff and volunteers manage the daily water quality updates for all of Swim Guide’s New Zealand beaches, based on current water quality information from monitoring programs run by each of the country’s 16 councils.
Pulse Energy is committed to looking after New Zealand families. Making the most up-to-the minute water quality information easy to access and to understand will help Kiwis and tourists alike avoid sickness from swimming in contaminated water.
Support from Pulse Energy helps Kiwis make better choices about where and when to swim. Pulse Energy’s support also helps Swim Guide share important information about making everyone’s beach visits safer, more memorable, and more fun!
Pulse Energy long-term support has been instrumental to Swim Guide’s success.
