Mid Canterbury Federated Framers Monthly Meeting - Thursday 16 March 2017, 7.30pm, Federated Farmers Buildings, West Street, Ashburton

9 March 2017

For the 2017/18 financial year, Transpower will charge EA Networks an additional $5.5 million for interconnection with the national grid. Note; this is due to consumption from the 2015/16 period and is fixed as a consequence. These charges relate entirely to the use of irrigation across our system and consequently will be passed-through to that load group in our charges to electricity retailers.

The average impact of this per irrigation connection is approximately $3,300 per annum (based on an 87kW (chargeable) pump size).
