Overview

On 13 May 2021 SA Power Networks submitted an application to vary a waiver of the Ring-fencing Guideline - Electricity Distribution under clause 5.2 of the Guideline.

SA Power Networks' application was to continue to provide certain telecommunication services to a large customer. The application is the result of the extension of the contract between SA Power Networks and the large customer to 30 June 2023. As a result SA Power Networks sought to vary their existing waiver expiry date from 30 June 2021 to 30 June 2023.

On 3 June 2021, we published our Final Decision to grant SA Power Networks' application to extend the waiver expiry date as requested.
