EDB connection factsheets and contribution policies

There are 29 Electricity Distribution Businesses (EDBs) delivering electricity to every region across Aotearoa. These are the lines companies that operate the poles and wires. We want to make it easy for people to find important info to connect to EDBs networks — including the connection costs.  

This map provides quick access to the connection policies for the 29 EDBs. It also includes a factsheet for each EDB, highlighting important connection information and how connection charges are calculated.

As the country shifts to electrifying more things, demand and investment varies from region to region. You can see this with our demand and investment map. EDBs have specialist knowledge and skills for the connections needed for their specific region, so a one-size-fits-all approach is not practical. This map helps anyone wanting to connect to any network find key information quickly. This will kick-start the process of connecting to New Zealand’s distribution networks. 

To search for info on a specific EDB, click on the map or the EDB name listed on the left-hand side. You will see two links for each EDB. A quick factsheet that pulls out key information you might need to know about connecting to their network, and also the full connection policy from that EDB.  

If you would like to see this map on a full screen, click on the small box (with a diagonal arrow) at the bottom right of the map.  


Updating the map 

ENA will work with the EDBs to update this map regularly. However, if you see anything that needs updating, please get in touch with us by emailing info@electricity.org.nz.
