Prices - correction to Dominion Post story

25 September 2006

Contact energy prices - correction to Dominion Post story

A story in this morning's Dominion Post about an increase in electricity and gas prices implies there is a nationwide electricity price increase. This is not correct.

The Dominion Post story has been widely reported, creating understandable confusion among news media and Contact customers.

"From 1 October there are electricity tariff increases for customers in Wellington, North Canterbury and West Auckland and the North Shore. There is no nationwide electricity price increase. "

Contact's gas prices are also increasing from 1 October.

"Contact sets its electricity tariffs on a regional basis throughout the year. There is no single electricity price increase across Contact's total customer base."
