I. Introduction
This paper examines the decision of Transpower to make major investments in the national grid. The analysis and examination will be done in the context of the need for such an investment; the implications of the investment in terms of funding, as well as the cost of the investment; the way all the regions of New Zealand fare in terms of the principle of fair treatment; the Electricity Commission's methodologies for pricing; the requirements from the statutes as far as enhancements to the grid infrastructure goes; issues tied to health with regard to the transmission lines; patterns of energy usage, as well as laws and incentives geared towards optimizing the demand and supply of power in the grid. The key question that needs to be answered in this paper is this: what are the major implications of putting up transmission lines in addition to the existing grid infrastructure in New Zealand?
