The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) released its Preliminary Decision on the regulated revenues for standard and alternative control services provided by Energex and Ergon on 30 April 2015.

In QCOSS’ submission in response to the Preliminary Decision we argue that the decision leaves distribution tariffs at artificially high levels which are significantly impacting on people and business activity. We believe there is a strong case for the AER to further reduce the significant opex and capex allowances for Ergon and Energex in its final decision. QCOSS considers that it is critical that the AER, and the Queensland Government as owner of the distribution assets, listen to and engage with consumers and apply strict disciplines in operating and capital allowances as well as in the WACC settings.
