Submission to the AEMC deferral of network charges rule change

Author

Energy Consumers Australia

We appreciate the opportunity to make this further submission in response to the Australian Energy Market Commission’s (AEMC) consultation paper on the Australian Energy Regulator’s (AER) proposal to allow network charges to be deferred.

We support the Commission’s policy position on retailer eligibility by limiting access to financial support provided by the deferral mechanism through the introduction of retailer eligibility rules. We also support the Commission’s concerns of allowing Retailers of Last Resort (RoLR) and government retailers to commercially benefit from the regulatory change without any demonstrated immediate financial need for this support.
