Extension of consultation period - 2018 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 has drafted an Issues Paper, which identifies topics that should be considered and seeks feedback from stakeholders. All interested parties were invited to make submissions on the Issues Paper by 11 January 2019. However, the due date for submissions has been extended to COB Friday 18 January 2019 in response to a request for further time.
