The Minister for Energy has asked the Public Utilities Office to undertake a review of the regulatory framework for retail electricity licensing and exemption activities.
The review will determine the most suitable form of regulation to ensure that all electricity consumers have adequate customer protections, regardless of the business model used for the delivery of electricity supplies.
Given the intended scope of the review, the Minister for Energy has determined that retail licence exemption applications for solar power purchase agreements currently under consideration will not be processed further and no additional solar power purchase agreement licence exemption applications will be accepted.
All enquiries on the review can be directed to (08) 6551 2777 or by email at[email protected].
