Overview

The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has released its process guideline on how to prepare a transmission network support pass through application in accordance with the National Electricity Rules (NER). The purpose of the Guideline is to inform stakeholders of the process, timing and information requirements that transmission network service providers must consider when preparing a network support pass through application.

The AER is required under clause 6A.7.2 of the NER to assess applications from transmission network service providers (TNSPs) to adjust their revenue determination when a network support pass through event occurs.

A network support pass through event occurs when the actual amount of network support payments incurred by a TNSP differs to the amount allowed in the revenue determination.
