Investing in the grid 2020 – 2025

We are currently finalising our proposal for how we will operate, maintain and invest in the grid from 2020 to 2025. The proposal is due to be submitted to the Commerce Commission in December this year.

Our proposal will include cost forecasts, performance targets, and suggestions for financial incentive settings and price-path smoothing arrangements.

We would like to invite your input and feedback to assist us in finalising our proposal. We will release a consultation paper in late July, which will cover our draft proposal and how have developed it, and what this means for our customers in terms of service and pricing. We’ll be asking for written feedback by Friday 24 August.

As part of our consultation process we will host a focus group session on Wednesday 8 August linking our offices in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch. If you’d like more information or to advance register for this focus group session, please contact us at
