Part 10 implementation: Proposed Guideline for Metering Equipment Providers
About this consultation
Part 10 of the Electricity Industry Participation Code 2010 (Code) establishes the regulatory framework for metering in the New Zealand electricity industry.
The Electricity Authority (Authority) has approved a new Part 10 and associated amendments to Parts 1, 11 and 15 to develop a new set of metering arrangements that will be effective from 6 June 2013.
The purpose of this consultation is to seek feedback from interested parties on the Authority's draft “Guideline for Metering Equipment Providers”.
The Authority has developed the draft guideline on the responsibilities and obligations of metering equipment providers (MEPs) in order to clarify the requirements contained in the Code and suggest recommendations on how some requirements could be met.
The Authority's preference is to receive submissions in electronic format (Microsoft Word). It is not necessary to send hard copies of submissions to the Authority, unless it is not possible to do so electronically.
