The Commission has determined to not make a draft rule in relation to the Aligning Network and Retail Tariff Structures for Small Customers rule change request. It considers current arrangements in the National Electricity Rules to be appropriate following enhancements made in late 2014 following the Distribution Network Pricing Arrangements rule change.
The proposed rule change would have imposed additional costs on all consumers and resulted in an inefficient allocation of risk.
Submissions on our draft rule determination will close on 27 August 2015. The draft rule determination and further information is available at www.aemc.gov.au.
