The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has published its determination on Murraylink’s connection charge pass through 2019–20 cost pass through application.
The AER is required to assess cost pass through applications for Murraylink in relation to its connection charge levies. Murraylink’s pass through application proposed a negative pass through amount of $843,871 due to the difference between actual connection charges levied and the forecast connection charge amount for 2019–20 included in Murraylink’s 2018–23 revenue determination.
The AER determined that a negative change event has occurred under the National Electricity Rules and approved a negative pass through amount of $830,194 to be refunded to Murraylink’s network users through reduction in transmission prices in 2021–22. The bill impact for customers is not expected to be material.
