The AEMC has extended the timeline for making a draft rule determination on the Transmission Connection and Planning Arrangements rule change request until 24 November 2016.

The rule change request proposes significant changes to the rules that underpin transmission connection and planning arrangements in the National Electricity Market. These changes, particularly those relating to connections, were commented on extensively by stakeholders in their submissions to the consultation paper.

The extended timeframe will enable the AEMC to hold a series of workshops on aspects of the rule change request and publish a directions paper for stakeholder comment.

Further information is provided in the linked information sheet.
