Overview

On 2 June 2016, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) approved an application from RTA Weipa Pty Ltd for an individual exemption from the requirement to hold an electricity retailer authorisation under the National Energy Retail Law.

Background

On 21 March 2016, the AER accepted an application from RTA Weipa Pty Ltd for an individual exemption from the requirement to hold a retailer authorisation under the National Energy Retail Law to sell energy at the township of Weipa, QLD.

Submissions on RTA Weipa Pty Ltd application closed 22 April 2016. No submissions were received.

Proposed variation of conditions

Exemptions relating to the sale or supply of energy to small customers have conditions relating to dispute resolution. In March 2018 the AER amended its network and retail guidelines to include energy ombudsman scheme membership as a core condition. Retail and network exemption holders that sell or supply energy to residential customers in South Australia, the ACT and New South Wales must now join the relevant ombudsman scheme.

Invitation for submissions

We are now seeking submissions from interested stakeholders on the variation of RTA Weipa Pty Ltd exemption by Friday 13 August 2021.
