Those decades of high electricity prices? You imagined them. According to the first report from the current Electricity Price Review, there is "nothing to suggest distributors are making excessive profits".

IGPS Senior Associate Dr Geoff Bertram has a simple explanation for this startling finding: the price review looked at only the past five years of data, from 2013 to 2017. What would we find if we took a longer view? Dr Bertram cordially invites you to a detailed discussion of prices across the Wellington and Hutt electricity networks over the past three decades.
