AER rejects cost based ActewAGL tariff structure


Source: SMH, 5 Aug 2016

 Proposals for a new ActewAGL electricity tariff structure due to take effect next year have been rejected by the Australian Energy Regulator as unnecessarily complex and unlikely to move consumers to off-peak consumption.

Actew AGL's proposal, which has been with the regulator since last November, was prepared in response to legislative changes initiated by the Australian Energy Market Commission's 2012 Power of Choice review.

The AER released its draft decision on ActewAGL's proposed tariff structure on Tuesday.
Actew AGL had developed the tariff structure after extensive consultation with its customers, energy networks general manager, Stephen Devlin, told Fairfax.

"We are working through the details of the [AER's] draft decision and will engage further with the AER to ensure we get an outcome that is in the best interests of our electricity consumers," he said.

"We will submit a revised proposal to the AER in response to its draft decision within 45 business days."
