Todd Energy Auckland Scheme Deserves Good Hearing

Todd Energy’s Auckland Scheme Deserves A Good Hearing…

In earlier comment on Auckland’s looming electricity shortage, Michael Barnett, Auckland Chamber of Commerce CEO urged the Electricity Commission to provide some certainty to the business community that a solution to the immediate problem was under action.

“It is pleasing that the private sector has stepped forward with what seems to be a practical solution,” said Mr Barnett.

The idea of building smaller capacity plants in a modular way, adding extra capacity when needed has potential to address both the immediate and long term electricity needs of Auckland.

“Let’s hope that the Todd Energy scheme gets a good hearing.”
