What you need to know:

  • Our pricing incorporates pricing principles advocated by the Electricity Authority. The Electricity Authority is an independent Crown entity responsible for the efficient operation of the New Zealand electricity market. We are the electricity market regulator.

  • These tariffs include the recovery of transmission line charges from Transpower and adjustments for inflation.

  • As line charges are included in your electricity retailer's invoice, the timing and method for passing through these line charges will be determined by your individual retailer.
