Compliance review
Release date

On 11 January 2024, the AER responded to Moorabool and Central Highlands Power Alliance Inc (MCHPA)’s letter dated 26 June 2023. In its 26 June letter to the AER, MCHPA raised compliance concerns about AEMO’s 2022 Integrated System Plan and AVP and Transgrid’s Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T) for the Victoria to New South Wales Interconnector West (VNI West). 

The AER is responsible for monitoring compliance and enforcement of the NER and for developing and maintaining guidelines for the application of the RIT-T. The AER also has a specific dispute resolution role in disputes raised by interested parties on the application of RIT-Ts.

We have carefully considered the compliance issues raised in MCHPA’s 26 June letter and provided our response. We are satisfied that AEMO and Transgrid are compliant with their obligations in the National Electricity Rules.
