Overview

On 7 July 2017, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) approved an application from Pumicestone Blue CTS 33280 (Pumicestone Blue) for an individual exemption from the requirement to hold a retailer authorisation under the National Energy Retail Law.

Background

On 17 May 2017, the AER accepted an application for an individual exemption from Pumicestone Blue from the requirement to hold a retailer authorisation under the National Energy Retail Law to sell energy at 111 Bulcock Road, Caloundra QLD.

Submissions on Pumicestone Blue's application closed 15 June 2017.

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 Pumicestone Blue CTS 33280 exemption by Friday 13 August 2021.
