On 30 April 2015 the AER released its final decision on Directlink's transmission determination for the 2015-20 regulatory control period.

As required by the National Electricity Rules, the AER undertook a transmission determination for Directlink, the interconnector that links the New South Wales and Queensland regions in the National Electricity Market.

On 2 June 2014 Directlink submitted its revenue proposal, proposed negotiating framework and proposed pricing methodology to the AER.

On 27 November 2014, the AER published its draft decision on Directlink's determination for the 2015-16 to 2019-20 regulatory control period.

On 13 January 2015, Directlink submitted a revised proposal to the AER.

Submissions on our draft decision and the revised proposal closed on 6 February 2015.
