News and Media Releases

From time to time Entrust speaks out on behalf of power consumers and our beneficiaries. Our media releases cover a range of issues regarding Entrust’s activities, as well as energy matters and regulatory issues that affect Vector, Entrust and our beneficiaries. All our media releases are listed for you to read below. Note: in June 2016 we changed our name from Auckland Energy Consumer Trust or AECT to Entrust. Media releases prior to that will have our former name.
