TPM Development Project: First Mover Disadvantage Consultation

This page currently includes our consultation paper and associated documents. We have published submissions (see below) and are currently accepting cross-submissions. 


Consultation

In August, we had released a consultation paper on options for connection charges and related provisions (all information is here). In our response to submissions and cross-submissions, we stated we would undertake further consultation on the first-mover disadvantage problem, recognising its complexity and importance.

On 28 October, we released a consultation paper (below) seeking further feedback on how the first mover disadvantage problem might be addressed in the new TPM proposal.

As well as the full consultation document, we provide the appendix as a separate Word document to aid you in preparing submissions. 

Submissions were due by 5pm on Wednesday, 18 November 2020. This period is followed by a one-week period for cross-submissions. Cross-submissions are due by 5pm on Wednesday, 25 November 2020. Please send submissions and cross-submissions to tpm@transpower.co.nz.

We will acknowledge receipt of all submissions and cross-submissions. Submissions and cross-submissions will be published on this website page the day following the due date.

If your submission or cross-submission contains confidential material, please ensure this is clearly identified and provide a version of your submission or cross-submission that can be published. Please note that all information provided to Transpower is subject to potential disclosure under the Official Information Act 1982.

Should you have questions to ask, please email us at the same address. We'll continue to publish questions and responses here.
