Becoming an energy retailer
Under national energy law, a person or business that engages in the retail sale of energy requires a retailer authorisation issued by the AER.
Three entry criteria must be satisfied to obtain a retailer authorisation:
- organisational and technical capacity of the applicant to meet the obligations of a retailer
- financial resources that ensure financial viability and financial capacity to meet the obligations of a retailer
- suitability of the applicant to be an energy retailer.
