AER publishes joint issues paper for AusNet Services, CitiPower, Jemena, Powercor and United Energy

On 31 January 2020, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) received regulatory proposals from Victorian distributors:

These proposals set out the revenue each business proposes to collect from consumers through network charges from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2026, and include proposed Tariff Structure Statements for that period for each of the electricity distribution businesses.

To assist stakeholders in their consideration of these proposals we have published a joint issues paper highlighting some of the key elements of these proposals, and how stakeholders can assist in our review.

We invite interested parties to make submissions on the regulatory proposals, issues paper and criteria by 3 June 2020. Submissions should be emailed to
