Code amendment omnibus #2 decision

  • Policy
  • Code

The Electricity Authority Te Mana Hiko has decided to make three discrete amendments to the Electricity Industry Participation Code 2010 to:

  1. amend Part 8 to clarify use and availability of controllable load – effective 1 May 2024
  2. amend Part 6A to include all generation technology – effective 1 June 2024
  3. update and clarify the scope and effect of Part 6A obligations – effective 1 June 2024.

All three amendments mainly apply to distributors and, in the case of Part 8 amendments, the system operator. Retailers and generators which are connected to a distributor, and people involved in these businesses, also need to be aware of these amendments.

We would like to thank all submitters who provided feedback on these amendments. We received 15 submissions and made changes to all three of our proposals in response to submitters’ suggestions.
