AER: review of rate of return guideline (submissions by 28 August 2017)
The AER is seeking views from stakeholders on the process it will use to review its Rate of return guideline.
The AER determines the amount of revenue that electricity and gas network businesses can recover from customers for the use of their networks. A key component of this allowed revenue is the ‘rate of return’. This is a forecast of the cost of funds a network business requires to attract investment in its network.
Stakeholders can provide submissions to the consultation paper by Monday 28 August 2017.
