On 3 June 2021, the AER published a final decision granting SA Power Networks a variation of an existing ring-fencing waiver. The waiver variation extends the expiry date of the existing waiver, originally granted to SA Power Networks in 2018, from 30 June 2021 to 30 June 2023.
The waiver variation allows SA Power Networks to continue to provide certain telecommunication services to a large customer. The variation is the result of the extension of the contract between SA Power Networks and the large customer to 30 June 2023.
The final decision outlines the reasons for granting the waiver variation.
