Submission: Australian Energy Regulator’s Victorian Draft Distribution Determination 2011- 2015
Consumer Action strongly supports the Draft Decision and the level of scrutiny the AER has applied to the Distribution Network Service Providers’ regulatory proposals. We continue to have some concerns about the proposed increases by the DNSPs to their capital expenditure in relation to asset management and have also provided evidence that market conditions mean that the Market Risk Premium can be reduced to 6.0%. Our submission, including a report by Orion Economic Services, highlight these areas and others where we believe the AER can continue to assess the DNSPs to ensure cost recovery is reasonable and efficient.
