Investing in our network for you
We’re regulated by the Commerce Commission to ensure we provide a reliable service to you at a fair price. This is known as price-quality regulation. There are two types of price-quality regulation for distribution companies like us. They are:
default price-quality path (DPP) – when generic price-quality standards apply.
customised price-quality path (CPP) – when price-quality standards are tailored to a company’s specific investment plans and requirements.
We’re currently under a DPP for our gas network until 2022 and a CPP for our electricity network until 2023.

We prepare and provide submissions to a number of regulatory, government department and industry bodies on issues affecting the electricity and gas industries. You can find those submissions here.
From 1 October 2023 our gas charges will increase by an average of 14.3% - about 18c per day for residential customers.
