On 22 November 2007, the AER released its preliminary position in relation to the distribution determinations for ACT and NSW distribution network service providers for 2009-2014. The paper invited submissions from interested parties in response to the preliminary position, of which the AER received six.
On 29 February 2008, the AER published its final decision. This decision sets out the AER’s consideration of comments raised in relation to the proposed preliminary position on the EBSS. It has been prepared by the AER under clause 6.5.8(a) of the transitional Chapter 6 rules.
The AER published a new version of the EBSS in November 2013 that will apply in future electricity transmission and distribution determinations. It will apply in regulatory control periods commencing after November 2013.
