No pylons in the Waikato till 2017

reported here.
I like this quote;
He said Transpower had to build an electricity grid that provided a platform for a long-term sustainable future for New Zealand and the Electricity Commission must examine the economics of Transpower proposals.
hhmmm, me thinks a conflict of interest here. What did you expect Transpower to say? 'we believe a mixture of energy efficiency, line upgrades and small scale distributed generation in the Auckland region should see a secure electricity supply out to 2025' ??? oh come on, his company is mandated to make a commercial profit, it'd be like Microsoft telling you to use an in_browser office suite to extend the useful life of your pentium II running windows...
