NZGP Phase One Updated Preferred Option Consultation

Updated preferred option consultation

On 16 August 2023, we sought further views on our Net Zero Grid Pathways Phase One major capex proposal (NZGP1 MCP). This was after discussion with the Commerce Commission regarding estimation of the net benefits in our original proposal. We changed the preferred option from shortlist Option 10 to shortlist Option 14 after recalculating the net benefit, which we then consulted on. Submissions were due by 5pm Wednesday, 06 September 2023. We received three submissions. Our consultation documents and the three submissions are published below. Thanks to those who took the time to read the consultation documents and for the submissions received. Any questions can be emailed to [email protected].
