Trustpower is appealing the Electricity Authority’s (EA) recent decision to replace the Transmission Pricing Guidelines in the High Court. The new guidelines will change the way Transpower’s costs are allocated to its customers.
The Electricity Authority (the Authority) today published its final decision in relation to the setting of transmission pricing guidelines (Guidelines). The Authority began the process to review the Guidelines soon after it was established in 2010. The Authority has now directed Transpower to prepare a new transmission pricing methodology and submit it to the Authority for approval.
