PositionBack to top
On 19 September 2019 the AER released its position paper on the default market offer (DMO) price for 2020–21 and sought stakeholders' views on possible methodologies for determining the DMO price and other issues relevant to our determination. These include:
- the overarching methodology approach for determining the DMO price for 2020–21
- proposals for forecasting changes costs for 2020–21
- the annual usage assumptions from which DMO prices are calculated, including the timing and pattern of the usage
- determining DMO prices for customers on time of use (TOU) and solar tariffs (which are not covered under the current Regulations). The Commonwealth Government has flagged its intention to amend the Regulations to apply to these tariffs for the 2020–21 determination.
