AGL recently made this submission supporting the need for a review of the Framework & Approach (F&A) applying to distribution network service providers in Tasmania, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.

The F&A is the first step in the process to determine efficient prices for electricity distribution services. For electricity distribution businesses, the F&A determines, amongst other things, which services the Australian Energy Regulator will regulate and the broad nature of any regulatory arrangements as prescribed by the National Electricity Rules. This includes how the AER will set prices for electricity distribution services and the application of any incentive schemes.
