Pre-consultation: Connection of distributed generation
NOTE: Following requests from participants, the Authority has decided to extend the deadline for submissions until 5:00pm on Friday 11 November 2011.
About this consultation
The purpose of this pre-consultation is to provide an opportunity for stakeholders to inform the Authority of any options or issues they believe should be included in formal consultation later in 2011. It is hoped that by providing an opportunity for input now, the number of formal consultations can be minimised.
The general purpose of Part 6 of the Code is to "enable connection of distributed generation if connection is consistent with connection and operation standards".
The Authority is reviewing Part 6 because it is aware of some specific issues, and for reasons of general good regulatory practice.
Part 6 of the Code replaced the Electricity Governance (Connection of distributed generation) Regulations 2007, effective 1/11/10. This is the first review of either the Regulations or Part 6.
The Authority's preference is to receive submissions in electronic format. It is not necessary to send hard copies of submissions to the Authority, unless it is not possible to do so electronically.
Submissions in electronic form should be emailed to email@example.com with 'Pre-consultation Paper - Connection of distributed generation' in the subject line.
If submitters do not wish to send their submission electronically, they should post one hard copy of their submission to the address below:
PO Box 10041
Level 7, ASB Bank Tower

Tel: 04 460 8860
Fax: 04 460 8879
Submissions should be received by 5:00pm on Friday 11 November 2011. Please note that late submissions are unlikely to be considered, though they will be noted for any future reviews.
The Authority will acknowledge receipt of all submissions electronically. Please contact the Submissions' Administrator if you do not receive electronic acknowledgement of your submission within two business days.
Submitters should indicate any documents attached, in support of the submission, in a covering letter and clearly indicate any information that is provided to the Authority on a confidential basis. However, all information provided to the Authority is subject to the Official Information Act 1982.
