The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) is in the final stages of determining SA Power Networks 2020-25 Regulated Revenue with a final determination due on April 30. SA Power Networks has made further submissions seeking to add a new step change to its opex allowance and also add a new contingent project.
These proposals have been provided by SA Power Networks late in the review process, after it lodged its revised proposal and after stakeholder submissions have been made. The AER decided to open a short consultation period to allow stakeholders to comment on these new proposals. This submission therefore represents a supplementary submission to that made by the Project Partners on the Revised Proposal (20 January 2020).
