Voluntary consultation guidelines for proposed changes to distributors' tariff structures
About this consultation
Clause 12A.7 of Part 12A of the Electricity Industry Participation Code 2010 (Code) requires distributors to consult with traders (retailers) on material changes to their tariff structures. This requirement comes into effect on 1 May 2012.
On 28 October 2011, the Electricity Authority (Authority) advised its intention to develop voluntary guidelines for such consultation. The purpose of the consultation guidelines is to facilitate meaningful and more effective engagement between distributors and traders during the early stages of the tariff structure development process.
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.
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
2 Hunter Street
Tel: 04 460 8860
Fax: 04 460 8879
Submissions should be received by 5:00pm on Wednesday 9 May 2012. Please note that late submissions are unlikely to be considered.
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.
Your submission is likely to be made available to the general public on the Authority's website. 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.
