Peak demand information consultation paper
About this Consultation
Part F of the Electricity Governance Rules 2003 (Rules) requires the Electricity Commission (Commission) to develop benchmark agreements for connection to the grid and for use of the grid.
The Commission is proposing to include an additional service measure in the recommendations to the Minister on the benchmark agreement workstream. However, the Commission has not undertaken any consultation on this proposal as the issue that the proposal addresses has arisen from recently received submissions on Transpower's proposed Transmission Pricing Methodology.
The Commission is currently seeking drafting comments on the set of proposals it intends to submit to the Minister of Energy, which include a placeholder for the potential addition of the proposed peak demand information service measure.
The Commission has undertaken the necessary analysis relating to the inclusion of the proposal in the benchmark agreement. The purpose of this paper is to consult on this analysis.
Following consultation the Commission will consider submissions, and then decide if it is appropriate to include the service measure in the benchmark agreement for recommendation to the Minister.
The Commission invites submissions on this paper, including responses to the specific questions in the Section 4. Please provide reasoning and, where appropriate, analysis, to support your views.
Rule 4.4.2 of section II requires that the Commission must allow at least 15 business days for consultation on the benchmark agreement. As the peak demand information measure is a new proposal for the benchmark agreement, the Commission considers it must comply with rule 4.4.2. The Commission considers that, as this proposal is not overly complex and the timeline for recommendation of the benchmark agreement to the Minister is tight, 15 business bays is an appropriate consultation period on this submission.
