Electricity licensees
The Utility Regulator issues licences, subject to the satisfaction of certain criteria, to those who wish to engage in electricity generation or supply. We also ensure that these licences are enforced. Please note that being granted a licence does not mean that the Utility Regulator has given any endorsement to the applicant or any associated person, their financial status or their business plan or methods. The Utility Regulator does not give any guarantee or warranty that the licensee or any related person is ‘fit and proper’.

Market opening allows the potential for further competition to develop in the electricity market. The Utility Regulator played an integral part in this.
