Annual network plans
SA Power Networks produces two annual network reports: one describing the network and emerging problems, the other describing Demand Management initiatives and activities undertaken in the previous financial year.
Both sets of reports refer to Reasonableness Tests where SA Power Networks evaluates the potential for a Demand Management solution to a network problem.
They also make references to Requests for Proposals (RFPs), where external parties may make proposals to SA Power Networks for the delay of, or resolution of, network problems and the evaluation of those proposals. Published evaluation reports are also located on the RFP page.
