The AER is required under Chapter 6A of the (NER) to make a transmission determination for ElectraNet in relation to the South Australian electricity transmission network. On 31 May 2007, ElectraNet submitted its revenue proposal, proposed negotiating framework and proposed pricing methodology to the AER.
The AER conducted the preliminary examination of ElectraNet’s proposal required under clause 6A.11.1 of the NER and found that it satisfied the requirements of the AER’s Submission Guidelines and the NER.
Under clause 6A.9.4 of the NER the AER’s transmission determination for ElectraNet must set out the Negotiated Transmission Service Criteria (NTSC). The NTSC determined by the AER must give effect to, and be consistent with, the negotiated transmission services principles set out in clause 6A.9.1 of the NER. Interested parties were invited to provide written submissions on ElectraNet's proposal to the AER. Submissions closed Friday, 17 August 2007.
The AER held a public forum on the proposal submitted by ElectraNet on Tuesday, 24 July 2007 in Adelaide.
