Electricity Industry (Exemption No. 146 (Trustpower Limited)) Exemption Revocation Notice 2016

Under section 11(3) of the Electricity Industry Act 2010 (“Act”), the Electricity Authority (“Authority”) gives the following notice.


1. Title and commencement—(1) This notice is the Electricity Industry (Exemption No. 146 (Trustpower Limited)) Exemption Revocation Notice 2016.

(2) This notice comes into force on the day after the date it is notified in the New Zealand Gazette.

2. Revocation—The Electricity Industry (Exemption No. 146 (Trustpower Limited)) Exemption Notice 2012, published in the New Zealand Gazette, 13 September 2012, No. 113, page 3237 (“Exemption 146”), is revoked.

3. Reasons for revoking the exemption—The reasons for revoking Exemption 146 are:

  1. the legal entity Trustpower Limited that was granted Exemption 146 has ceased to exist as a result of a demerger that came into effect on 20 October 2016;
  2. although Exemption 146 applies to six installation control points (“ICPs”), only five ICPs now need to be exempted from the obligation in clause 10.14, as the result of one ICP having been fitted with a meter;
  3. Exemption 146 refers to a clause in the Electricity Industry Participation Code 2010 that has since been revoked and the obligation now appears in a different clause (clause 10.14);
  4. the Authority has granted a new exemption to replace Exemption 146; and
  5. revoking Exemption 146 meets the requirements in section 11(3) of the Act for revoking exemptions.

Dated at Wellington this 25th day of January 2017.

For and on behalf of the Electricity Authority:
Hon ROGER SOWRY, onzm, Member, Electricity Authority.
