Capital Contributions Principles and Methods Statement


In accordance with Clause 79(2) of the Network Access Code, Power and Water Corporation Networks may require a network user to make a capital contribution where the provision of network access services to the network user requires new or upgraded assets, or the cost of the assets cannot be fully recovered by Power and Water Corporation Networks through future tariff revenues.

Prior to the commencement of each regulatory control period, Power and Water Corporation Networks must submit to the Commission for approval a statement providing details of principles and methods establishing capital contributions.

Power and Water Corporation Networks provided a draft Capital Contributions Principles and Methods Statement for approval as part of its Revised Regulatory Proposal for the 2014 Network Price Determination.

Following a period of public consultation, the Commission approved Power and Water Corporation Networks Capital Contributions Principles and Methods Statement for use from 1 July 2014 in accordance with clause 81(3) of the Network Access Code.
