Annual Network pricing: no change or small reduction in charges for most

Firstlight Network (previously known as Eastland Network) is the regional lines company for Gisborne, Wairoa and the East Coast. Each year, as part of the regular pricing cycle and to comply with regulatory requirements, we set our pricing for the coming 12 months.

The annual prices came into effect on 1 April 2023. The majority of customers can expect very little or no change to the Network portion of their power bill, which covers transmission and distribution of electricity.

Tariff charges for the pricing period will reduce overall by 1.3%, with varying movements across the customer categories.

The regulations that apply to the Network mean there are ongoing protections for local consumers around price and quality of supply, and these continue under our new ownership.
