The Australian Energy Market Commission today issued a notice to extend the period of time for making a final rule determination until 5 May 2016 on the rule change proposal from Snowy Hydro Limited to change the nature of the obligation on generators and other participants to comply with dispatch instructions from the market operator.

The publication of the final determination has been extended because stakeholder submissions in the second round of consultation raise issues of sufficient complexity which require additional time to be considered.
