Essential Energy - Proposed demand management and embedded generation connection incentive scheme

The AER will be undertaking the regulatory determination for the New South Wales (NSW) electricity distribution network service providers (DNSPs)—AusGrid, Endeavour Energy and Essential Energy, for the period 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2019.

In May 2012, the AER proposed amendments to its Demand Management and Embedded Generation Connection Incentive Scheme (DMEGCIS) to apply to NSW DNSPs for this period. Submissions on the AER's proposed DMEGCIS were received in August 2012.

On 17 September 2012, the AER decided to delay the final decision on its proposed DMEGCIS under cl. 6.16(g)(2) of the National Electricity Rules (NER). The delay was considered necessary in order for the AEMC to finalise its Power of Choice review.
