On 5 December 2014 the AER released an issues paper on the Queensland electricity distribution businesses’ regulatory proposals. The paper sets out our initial impressions of the distributors' proposals, including what we think will be some of the key issues for our assessment. We hope this paper is helpful for readers to form their own views on the distributors' proposals. The issues paper signals the commencement of a comprehensive consultation process.
Energy consumers and other interested parties should send submissions to the AER by close of business on 30 January 2015. The AER will publish a preliminary decision late in April 2015 and further submissions will be invited at that time.
The proposals are available on the AER’s website www.aer.gov.au.
