Our demand response programme

What is demand response?

Demand response allows electricity consumers to respond to a signal from an organisation, like Transpower, to reduce their electricity demand for a period of time in exchange for a payment.

It’s a win-win situation where consumers get compensated for their involvement and see lower charges long term, while helping Transpower manage demand on the grid.
