Orion's network area is bordered by the Rakaia and Waimakariri rivers and stretches from the Southern Alps to Banks Peninsula. Orion formally applied to the Commission on 20 February 2013 for a customised price-quality path (CPP).

Orion proposed to increase its maximum average prices and reduce its required quality standards over the five years commencing 1 April 2014. Orion’s proposal was intended to address the impact of the Canterbury earthquakes, including the recovery of additional costs, lower than expected revenues, and to fund future investment in its network.
