The Australian Energy Market Commission has today published a draft Rule Determination and draft Rule for the Network Support Payments and Avoided TUoS for Embedded Generators Rule change.

The Commission's draft Rule is a proposed more preferable Rule which requires Transmission Network Service Providers to take avoided Transmission Use of System payments into account when negotiating a network support payment with an embedded generator.

Stakeholders are invited to provide comment on the draft Rule Determination and draft Rule. Submissions must be received by 10 November 2011.
