The Statement of Intent (SOI) is a formal public accountability document that outlines our strategic intentions for a 4-year period. The SOI may be updated at any time but at least every 3 years. The SOI is required under sections 139 and 141 of the Crown Entities Act 2004.

Our Statement of Intent for 2017- 2021

We want New Zealand consumers to benefit from a competitive, reliable and efficient electricity industry. Our Statement of Intent outlines our long-term strategic intentions for a four-year period.

The key priorities in our 2017–2021 Statement of Intent are:

  • a level playing field, because we want competition and innovation to happen
  • efficient pricing, because we want prices to be reasonable
  • a secure electricity supply, because we want the lights to stay on.

More information about the work we’re doing to support these priorities is available in our 2017–2021 Statement of Intent and at a high level in the video below.
