Part 3 of the Act
Separation of distribution from certain generation and retailing
The purpose of Part 3 is to promote competition in the electricity industry:
- by prohibiting a person who is involved in a distributor from being involved in a generator where that may create incentives and opportunities to inhibit competition in the electricity industry; and
- by restricting relationships between a distributor and a generator or a retailer, where those relationships may not otherwise be at arm's-length.
Prior to 1 November 2010, this function was the responsibility of the Commerce Commission under the Electricity Industry Reform Act 1998 (EIR Act). A list of the decisions made by the Commerce Commission on applications for exemption can be found in the exemptions register on the Commerce Commission website.
All exemptions received after 1 November 2010 can be found on the Authority's register located below.
Further information on Part 3 can be found on Part 3 in the appropriate sub-folders for sections 77, 88, 89 and 90. Parties who provide the Authority with information under Part 3 of the Act must use the standard templates provided below.
