Extension of time to submit
On 14 October 2016, ElectraNet wrote to the AER requesting a delay for the submission of its revenue proposal. ElectraNet submitted that, given the extenuating circumstances arising from the system black incident on 28 September 2016, it faces significant resource challenges in meeting the proposal due date of 31 January 2017.
The AER appreciates the unique challenges faced by ElectraNet as a result of this event. We also recognise ElectraNet's efforts in undertaking early engagement with stakeholders in developing its revenue proposal which we consider will result in increased certainty in the revenue proposal.
Accordingly we have accepted an 8 week delay for ElectraNet to submit its revenue proposal on 28 March 2017.
