Electricity Lines Businesses: conference details

Electricity Lines Businesses: conference details

The Commerce Commission will hold a five-day conference on its draft decisions on the regulatory regime for electricity lines businesses from 10-14 March 2003.

The conference venue is CSI House, Level 5, 166 Featherston Street, Wellington. The conference will be chaired by John Belgrave.

A copy of the conference programme is attached.

Media are asked to confirm their attendance with Jackie Maitland, Communications Manager,
(04) 924-3708 or jackie.maitland@comcom.govt.nz

The conference is a further opportunity for interested parties to present their views on what thresholds the Commission should use to determine whether individual electricity lines businesses be investigated and, if necessary, controlled.

Whereas previous conferences (July and November 2002) focussed on possible forms of thresholds and asset valuation issues, the upcoming conference will focus on the Commission’s proposed thresholds and their implementation in practice.

The Commission has received 54 submissions. All submissions are published on the Commission’s website, www.comcom.govt.nz, select Electricity Lines Businesses.
