The AER has received a regulatory proposal from Essential Energy for the period 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2024. The proposal sets out the revenue Essential Energy proposes to collect from consumers through network charges from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2024, and includes a proposed Tariff Structure Statement for that period. The proposal and supporting documents are available under the proposal milestone.

To assist stakeholders in their consideration of Essential Energy's proposal, we published an issues paper on 27 June 2018. The issues paper highlights some of the key elements of the proposal, and how stakeholders can assist in our review. We also held a public forum on 3 July 2018. Presentations from the forum are available under the 'Proposal' milestone.
