As a provider of an essential service to the South Australian community, SA Power Networks has a commitment to providing comprehensive information about our performance, activities and plans.
Every five years, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) makes a regulatory revenue determination based on our proposal for improving, maintaining and operating the distribution network to meet the needs of the South Australian community. The AER determination approves the levels of capital investment, operating cost, and overall funding required to complete our program of work.
On 31 October 2014 we submitted our 2015-2020 Regulatory Proposal to the AER.
The AER will make a first determination on our regulatory proposal by 30 April 2015. SA Power Networks will then have the opportunity to make further submissions on the first determination to the AER by 2 July 2015.
Subsequently, the AER will publish a substitute (final) determination by 31 October 2015 that will take effect from 1 July 2016.
Throughout the determination process the AER has advised it will consult with interested parties and take their views into account.
Further information on the AER's approach to the SA Power Networks - Determination 2015-20 can be found at the AER website.
