Half-hourly and annual average wholesale electricity prices are published on www.comitfree.co.nz. The wholesale electricity price differs from the retail electricity price, which is the price domestic consumers pay retailers for electricity and is the price consumers see on their electricity bill. There are a number of factors, including the wholesale price, which influence retail prices. For further hydrological or pricing information: visit www.comitfree.co.nz
