Overview

On 31 August 2020, Endeavour Energy submitted a cost pass through application seeking to recover costs in relation to the 2019-20 bushfires. The bushfires impacted 44 per cent of Endeavour Energy’s network area, causing significant damage to parts of the network and interrupting supply to over 55,000 customers.

Endeavour Energy submits their emergency restoration and subsequent response efforts, which include activities performed during and after the bushfire event, have a material impact to the cost of providing direct control services and constitutes a natural disaster pass through event. To recover these costs Endeavour Energy proposes a positive pass through amount of approximately $31.1 million.

Consultation

We invite energy consumers and other interested parties to make a submission on Endeavour Energy's 2019-20 bushfires pass through application by close of business Monday, 5 October 2020.
