Our gas distribution prices are increasing
From 1 October 2021 our gas distribution charges will increase 1.51%.
We own and maintain the network of pipes that delivers gas to customers in Taranaki, Hawke’s Bay, Manawatū, Horowhenua, Hutt Valley, Porirua and Wellington.
Last year, we constructed 70km of pipeline and connected more than 2,000 homes and businesses to gas for free. We also spent $4-$5m on maintenance and responding to safety call-outs.
About 30% of your gas bill is passed on by your retailer to us so we can continue to invest in our network and ensure you continue to have safe and reliable supply. We aim to spread the cost of building and maintaining our network in a fair and efficient way.
We review our prices every year. This year’s price increase is effective 1 October 2021.
