AER: Victoria F-factor scheme results for 2016–17 reporting period
“The f-factor scheme is a Victorian Government initiative that provides financial incentives to Victorian electricity distribution businesses (the distributors) to lower the number of fire starts on their networks in Victoria. If the number of fire starts rises, the networks are required to pay a penalty.
The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has received fire start reports from distributors for the 2016–17 reporting period, which have subsequently been validated by Energy Safe Victoria. For this reporting period all distributors have achieved results better than their respective benchmark targets.”
