The gas industry is a regulated industry. That means the Commerce Commission regulates the revenue we earn and the quality of service we are required to provide. Every year we review, adjust and publish our gas distribution prices.

This year from 1st October 2021 our gas distribution prices will increase on average by 1.51%, reflecting inflation (CPI).
