Overview

On 18 November 2016, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) approved an application from Couran Point Services Pty Ltd for an individual exemption from the requirement to hold a retailer authorisation under the National Energy Retail Law.

Background

On 15 September 2016, the AER accepted an application from Couran Point Services Pty Ltd for an individual exemption from the requirement to hold a retailer authorisation under the National Energy Retail Law to sell energy at Couran Point Estate, South Stradbroke Island QLD.

Submissions on Couran Point Services application closed on 17 October 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 Couran Point Services Pty Ltd exemption by Friday 13 August 2021.
