Overview

On 17 April 2014, the AER approved Ergon Energy's ring-fencing waiver application in respect of a 1MVA network support generation unit in the Mount Isa region.

Background

On 17 January 2014, the AER received an application from Ergon Energy to waive obligations under section 1(b) of the (Queensland) Electricity Distribution Ring-Fencing Guidelines (the Guidelines) administered by the AER under the National Electricity Rules. The waiver application related to the ownership and operation of a 1.0MVA grid-connected generation option constructed by Ergon Energy for network support in the Mount Isa region to alleviate identified network constraints.

On 7 March 2014, the AER made a draft decision to approve Ergon Energy's waiver application. No submissions were received on the AER's draft decision.
