AER reference: 


On 31 October 2017, Ergon Energy submitted to the AER a request to develop a replacement Framework and Approach (F&A) to apply to its next distribution determination process for the 2020-25 regulatory control period.

The preliminary framework and approach paper for Qld distributors was published on 22 March 2018 and invited written submissions. Five submissions were received. The final F&A paper, largely reflecting the preliminary F&A, was published on 30 July 2018.
