North Taranaki Interconnection Investigation: provide your input

Transpower is currently seeking input on how best to meet the future electricity supply needs of the northern Taranaki region. 

We are currently investigating options for continuing to provide reliable transmission to North Taranaki and New Plymouth. An asset is reaching its end-of-life stage and we think there is a better way to deliver North Taranaki its electricity than simply replacing the asset. 

The possible solutions and alternatives we are considering include demand response, new generation, site relocation, and other transmission options.
