As stipulated by the National Electricity Rules (NER), Energex's economic regulation is governed by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER).
The AER released its Final Determination for Energex, on 6 May 2010, setting out the maximum revenue that we can recover for each year in the regulatory control period of 2010-11 to 2014-15.
On 19 May 2011, the Australian Competition Tribunal (the Tribunal) varied the AER's determination. The Tribunal made its orders after a review of the value of imputation credits (gamma), alternative control services (quoted services) and labour cost escalators.
The approved revenue reflects our current operating environment with increased capital and operating expenditure driven by growth, increased debt and regulatory changes.
Network expansion with increased demand for the use of air-conditioning and other energy-intensive appliances at each connection has set a strong growth trend that is forecast to continue.
