Customer-facing grid performance measures

We have developed new measures and targets for service performance based on what matters to our customers and end-consumers.

Finalised proposal

On 2 December 2013 we submitted a finalised proposal for customer-facing performance measures to the Commerce Commission. These measures will be considered as part of the Commission’s review of our proposed expenditure for our next regulatory period (RCP2).

Process

A major part of the development of the new measures and targets has been a series of consultations with our customers.

We published our initial proposal at the end of October 2012 and invited customers and their representatives to provide feedback.

In March 2013 we published a revised proposal and a separate paper that summarised customer feedback and our response. We asked for further feedback on the revised proposal, and specific feedback on the targets and the categorisation of customer points of service.

On 12 July 2013 we held a teleconference with customers to outline progress on our performance measures and to invite feedback, particularly on two aspects: the availability measures and our proposed revenue-linked incentive regime.

Power quality reporting industry working group

A number of customers provided feedback on our October consultation on power quality issues, particularly voltage sags, and on momentary interruptions. These are important issues for some customers. As a result, we are establishing a power quality reporting industry working group. We expect this group to meet four times over the course of the next 12 months to progress work in this area.
