PURSUANT to section 1(4) of the Energy Companies Act 1992, Her Excellency the Governor-General, acting by and with the advice and consent of the Executive Council, hereby makes the following order.

1 Title
  • This order may be cited as the Energy Companies Act Commencement Order 1994.

2 Commencement of sections 89 and 96 of the Energy Companies Act 1992

MARIE SHROFF,

Clerk of the Executive Council.

Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order brings into force, on 7 October 1994, sections 89 and 96 of the Energy Companies Act 1992.

Section 89

On 1 September 1994 every local authority the operations of which included an energy undertaking had transferred that energy undertaking to an energy company. Part 30 of the Local Government Act 1974 was therefore no longer required as from that date.

Section 96 repeals the Electric Power Boards Act 1925 and makes certain consequential amendments. From 1 September 1994 that Act was no longer necessary because an Order in Council made under section 47(1) of the Energy Companies Act 1992 had come into force in respect of each electric power board.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 8 September 1994.
