We have now published our draft decision on Essential Energy's electricity distribution determination for the 2024-29 regulatory control period.

Distributors in NSW and the ACT are the first to propose export reward tariffs in their 2024-29 TSSs. The Export reward tariffs and you (factsheet) has been created to read alongside our draft decisions.
