Our legislative and regulatory obligations

Wellington Electricity is subject to a range of legislative and regulatory obligations, designed to ensure our network is safely and efficiently planned, constructed, operated and maintained, and that the prices we charge for our services are within regulated allowances.

In particular, Wellington Electricity has obligations under Part 4 of the Commerce Act 1986, administered by the Commerce Commission and the Electricity Industry Act 2010 administered by the Electricity Authority.

Wellington Electricity regularly engages with the Electricity Authority and Commerce Commission through active participation in submissions on various matters and regular information disclosures.
