Overview

CitiPower and Powercor have proposed the introduction of an ‘AMI Bring forward service fee’.

The proposed fee is to recover the costs incurred by CitiPower and Powercor for installing an AMI meter when a customer requests installation ahead of the scheduled AMI roll-out.

The AER assessed these applications under the November 2008 Order in Council made under the Electricity Industry Act 2000 (Vic) applicable to the regulation of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), or 'smart meters', in Victoria.
