Consultation - Opex productivity growth forecast review

On 8 March 2019, we published our final decision paper for our operating expenditure productivity growth forecast review. We decided that a 0.5 per cent annual operating expenditure productivity growth reflects a reasonable forecast of the productivity growth a prudent and efficient distributor can make.

As flagged in our draft and final decision papers for that review, we propose to adopt this operating expenditure productivity growth forecast when making our final decision for Evoenergy's 2019-24 distribution determination. We wrote to Evoenergy about the impact of our productivity growth decision on our assessment of its revised opex proposal.

On 21 March 2019, Evoenergy made a submission in response to our letter.
