TPM Development Project: Prudent Discount Policy Consultation

This page currently includes our consultation paper and associated documents. We have published submissions and cross-submissions (see below). 


Consultation

On 28 October, we released a consultation paper seeking feedback on our initial thinking regarding incorporating the additional "stand-alone cost" prudent discount into the Prudent Discount Policy (PDP) component of the TPM. Our consultation also included our suggestions about changes to administrative, analytical, commercial and funding matters within the PDP.
 

The EA’s TPM Guidelines require Transpower to expand the PDP to incorporate this new "stand-alone cost" prudent discount.


On 28 October, we released a consultation paper seeking further feedback on how the prudent discount policy might be addressed in the new TPM proposal.  Submissions were due by 5pm on Wednesday, 18 November 2020, followed by a one-week period for cross-submissions. Thank you to all who contributed. We will review all submissions and cross-submissions as we develop the new TPM.
