Case Study

Regulatory issues

The client: A large manufacturer in the food industry


The challenge: The client was moving to a new site and required electricity to be connected. They contacted the energy distributor who advised that an advance payment of around $800,000 was required prior to connection as a contribution to their electricity supply infrastructure.


The solution: The client contacted Trans Tasman Energy Group, who successfully challenged the distributor regarding the requirement of such a large advance payment. Ultimately, the client paid just $250,000 in advance and a further $250,000 once energy was connected at the new site – a total saving of $300,000.
