On 28 March 2017, ElectraNet submitted its transmission revenue proposal, proposed negotiating framework and proposed pricing methodology and supporting information to the AER. The proposal sets out the revenue ElectraNet proposes to collect from electricity consumers through transmission charges from 2018 to 2023.
Regulatory information notice
Negotiated transmission service criteria
Under clause 6A.9.4 of the NER, the AER's transmission determination for ElectraNet must set out the Negotiated Transmission Service Criteria (NTSC). The NTSC determined by the AER must give effect to, and be consistent with, the negotiated transmission service principles set out in clause 6A.9.1 of the NER.
We invited submissions on the NTSC by 7 July 2017. No submissions were received.
On 7 June 2017, we conducted a public forum in Adelaide on ElectraNet's revenue proposal for 2018-23.
We published an issues paper for ElectraNet. The issues paper considers revenues that ElectraNet can earn for the five-year period starting 1 July 2018. The paper sets out the areas of the proposal that will likely be a focus of our review, and also considers ElectraNet's regulatory proposal, providing context to our review. We invited written submissions on this issues paper. Submissions closed on 7 July 2017.
We invited Interested parties to make submissions on the regulatory proposal and the issues paper by 7 July 2017.
Submissions closed on 7 July 2017. The AER may, but is not required to, consider a submission it receives after the consultation period has ended.
