The electricity market

How much electricity we generate and at what price is determined by competitive bids and offers in the wholesale electricity market.  The market is operated in real time by the System Operator (Transpower) and is closely regulated and monitored by the Electricity Authority (EA), ensuring all market participants act fairly to both our competitors and our customers. It’s important that the markets we operate in are open, fair and efficient because that benefits consumers and contributes to Meridian and others’ long-term success.  More.
