TPM Development Project: Prudent Discount Policy Consultation

This page currently includes our consultation paper and associated documents. We have published submissions (see below) and are currently accepting cross-submissions. We will make final decisions as part of the work to develop the new TPM proposal.


Consultation

On 28 October, we released a consultation paper seeking feedback on our initial thinking regarding incorporating the additional "stand-alone cost" prudent discount into the Prudent Discount Policy (PDP) component of the TPM. Our consultation also includes our suggestions about changes to administrative, analytical, commercial and funding matters within the PDP.

The EA’s TPM Guidelines requires Transpower to expand the PDP to incorporate this new "stand-alone cost" prudent discount.

As well as the full consultation document, we provide both appendices as separate Word documents 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.
