Consultation closed and submissions received for System Control Charges Review

​The Power and Water Corporation (PWC) made a submission to the Commission (Review of System Control Charges and Associated Funding Issues) under section 39(1) of the Electricity Reform Act proposing an increase to the system control charge, from the current $0.001 per kWh to $0.0057 per kWh, from 1 July 2019, and an annual review of the charge. 

As part of the Commission’s review of PWC’s system control charge proposal, it drafted an Issues Paper​, which identified topics that should be considered and sought feedback from stakeholders. 

The extended consultation period closed on 18 January 2019, with four submissions received.

The Commission is considering these submissions, and is expected to publish an associated draft decision in relation to PWC’s system control charges proposal in March 2019.
