AC 22/20

The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has received revenue proposals from the following Victorian electricity distributors:

These proposals set out the revenue each business proposes to collect from consumers through network charges from 1 June 2021 to 30 July 2026 and include proposed Tariff Structure Statements for this period for each of the electricity distribution businesses.

The AER will release an issues paper on these proposals in late March. A Public Forum will be held in April 2020.

We have also published our proposed negotiated distribution service criteria. These are the criteria to apply in negotiating terms and conditions of access for negotiated distribution services.
