Cost recovery applications

Origin Energy was appointed a Retailer of Last Resort (RoLR) for seven retailer failures between 24 May 2022 and 1 September 2022.

Under the National Energy Retail Law, Origin is claiming compensation for costs incurred for six of those events, through which it took on a combined 12,749 electricity customers as a designated RoLR. 

Origin’s RoLR obligations under the law ensured the continued supply of energy to these affected customers.

On 25 March 2024, we published a Consultation Paper which outlined the details of Origin’s application, the methodology they used, and the issues we need to consider in making a determination, including how any approved costs are passed through to consumers.

Two submissions were received. The consultation period ended on 26 April 2024.
