Regulatory Proposal 2019-24

Every five years, we submit a regulatory proposal to the Australian Energy Regulator (AER), which includes our proposed capital and operating plans and the funding needed to deliver them.

Our current five-year regulatory period ends on 30 June 2019 and our next regulatory period will be from 1 July 2019 through to 30 June 2024.

In preparing our plans for submission to the AER we engaged with our key stakeholders and customers to get their views on what will be important to them over the next 5 years.

2019-24 Regulatory Proposal

Our 2019-2024 Regulatory Proposal is now available for review. 

What happens next?

The AER will provide a draft determination on Essential Energy’s regulatory proposal, most likely in November 2018.

Once the draft determination is received, we will respond within 45 business days with a revised regulatory proposal that takes your feedback into account, as well as feedback from the AER.

Final plans and proposed charges will then be published by the AER in April 2019.
