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 we have given any endorsement to the applicant or any associated person, their financial status or their business plan or methods. We do not give any guarantee or warranty that the licensee or any related person is ‘fit and proper’. By applying to us for a licence you agree that the applicant and any related persons agree not to make any representations to the contrary.

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