Our capabilities continue to grow with Edison's inhouse consent specialist procuring an important global consent in Wellington, new team members in Tauranga and an easy way for you to contact us.

Great Result

Edison's consent specialist negotiates an important Global Resource Consent with Wellington City Council on behalf of Wellington Electricity and effectively sets a precedent for other network utility operators undertaking similar seismic resiliance programmes.

The document represents a ‘global’ consent which in effect licences external remediation works on ALL of Wellington Electricity’s zone and distribution substation assets in Wellington City’s jurisdiction (barring a few exceptions i.e. heritage listed buildings). This vastly differs from the norm where a consent usually applies to only one site.

Not only is the global consent a great win for the client, but it also makes a statement that we have bona fide in-house consenting experience. more about this and other Great Results on our website
