New Zealand's Electricity Industry Says It's Y2K Ready

By Adam Creed, Newsbytes.

New Zealand's Y2K Readiness Commission has published details of the Y2K preparedness of the country's electricity industry, concluding it is well prepared and in line with other countries like Australia, Canada and the US.

The commission's Electricity Industry Y2K Focus Group said that the bulk of those surveyed said their systems supporting the generation and delivery of electricity are ready and contingency planning is well under way.

Robert Scott, chairman of the focus group, said all line, generator and retail power companies took part and most problems reported were nuisance faults, such as incorrect date displays, rather than equipment malfunctions.
