Pre-proposal public consultation
Prior to finalising our proposal we reached out to industry, special interest groups, and members of the public to seek consultation on our RCP3 proposal. Our consultation document Securing Our Energy Future 2020 -2025 was provided at that time. We encouraged stakeholders to help us shape our RCP3 proposal and received submissions which may be viewed here.
Pre-proposal focus groups
As part of our consultation process we hosted a focus group session on Wednesday 8 August 2018 linking our offices in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch. You can access the focus group slides here.
Transpower Service Measures Refresh
We undertook a process to refresh our service measures (last set in 2013) for the 2020-25 Regulatory Control Period (RCP3).
These service measures are measures of our transmission services (like availability and reliability of the network) that we propose, and our regulator (the Commerce Commission) determines, at the commencement of each Regulatory Control Period (RCP). They are used to gauge our performance and, where appropriate, incentivise good and penalise poor performance. A major part of the refresh is consultation with our customers, interested consumer groups and the general public.
