Overview

On 31 October 2017, SA Power Networks 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 SA Power Networks was published on 22 March 2018 and invited written submissions. Nine submissions were received. The final Framework & Approach paper, largely reflecting the preliminary F&A, was published on 30 July 2018.

SA Power Networks submitted its regulatory proposal on 31 January 2019. The proposal sets out the revenue SA Power Networks proposes to collect from electricity consumers through distribution charges from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2025.
