Consultation - proposed negotiated distribution service criteria (NDSC) for Ausgrid

Under clause 6.7.4 of the NER, the AER's distribution determination for Ausgrid must set out the Negotiated Distribution Service Criteria (NDSC). The NDSC determined by the AER must give effect to, and be consistent with, the negotiated distribution service principles set out in clause 6.7.1 of the NER.

Confidentiality claims

This notice is an approximate indication of the proportion and comparative proportion of material in Ausgrid's regulatory proposal for 2014-19 and Regulatory Information Notice (RIN) response that is subject to a claim of confidentiality compared to that which is not.

Issues paper

On 11 July 2014 the AER released a corrected Issues paper on the NSW electricity distribution businesses' regulatory proposals. The correction relates to figure 13 on page 16 which now correctly reflects Essential Energy's operating expenditure. This paper aims to draw to stakeholders' attention some of the issues in the distributors' proposals that the AER thinks are likely to be important.

Stakeholder forum

On 10 July 2014, the AER held a public forum in Sydney on the revenue proposals submitted by the NSW electricity distribution network service providers (DNSPs) including Ausgrid.

A large number of stakeholders attended the forum.

The presentations from the Consumer Challenge Panel are the independent views of CCP members and do not necessarily reflect the views of the AER.
