ELECTRICITY PRICING

Our line charges include the cost of transmitting electricity across Transpower's national grid and distributing it to you across our network. Line charges are billed to you by your electricity retailer.

Vector's annual price increases are limited under regulation to inflation (the Consumer Price Index) plus changes in pass-through costs (e.g. Transpower transmission charges).

Delivering electricity line services efficiently  
We remain one of the lowest-cost energy infrastructure providers in New Zealand, with an operating expenditure per consumer among the best in the country.
