The AER today published its generator notice of closure exemption guideline. From 1 September 2019, generators will be required to provide at least 42 months’ advance notice of their intention to close, unless we grant exemption.
Our guideline details how we intend to handle applications for exemption, and what information applicants will be required to submit. We also published our final decision, which details how we developed the exemption guideline, and our responses to submissions.
In developing the exemption guideline we previously published a draft guideline and draft decision on 7 June 2019, and an issues paper on 1 March 2019.
