Consultation open: Code review programme

  • Code

The Electricity Authority is consulting on a set of changes to the Electricity Industry Participation Code 2010 (Code) to support the efficient operation of the electricity system.

We invite your feedback on 23 proposed changes to the Code as part of our Code review programme. We regularly review the Code to improve its clarity and keep it up to date as New Zealand’s electricity system evolves.

Please read the consultation paper and have your say. We look forward to receiving your submissions via our Information Provision platform by 5pm on Tuesday 10 October 2023.

We will carefully consider all views before making our final decisions this year.
