Standardisation: Clarifications to prudential proposal and proposed change to distributor indemnity proposal
About this consultation
The Electricity Authority (Authority) is progressing a number of priority projects to improve the performance of the electricity market, including the proposed introduction of more standardisation of distribution use-of-system agreements and tariff arrangements.
The objective of more standardisation of distribution arrangements is to improve retail competition by reducing barriers to entry to the retail market.
