Overview

Citipower's cost allocation method (CAM) governs the manner in which Citipower is allowed to allocate costs to the distribution services that it provides. The allocation of costs between the services is requried to accurately represent the costs incurred in providing those services. This prevents cross-subsidisation between the distribution and other services that Citipower provides.

The assessment of Citipower's CAM was based on the advice of McGrathNicol Corporate Advisory. On 6 May 2010, the AER approved the CAM submitted by Citipower, concluding that it was consistent with the AER's Victorian Cost Allocation Guidelines and was in accordance with the requirements of the National Electricity Law and National Electricity Rules.
