Customers expect that electricity utilities ensure the availability and reliability of electricity supply. Stakeholders expect electricity utilities to consider access to and affordability of electricity to all users for the overall sustainability of the community. These issues are considered in detail by energy regulators who set out and enforce requirements applicable to the Asset Companies.
The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has implemented a national Service Target Performance Incentive Scheme, which provides incentives to electricity distribution network businesses to improve service, quality – including reliability – over time.
The asset companies meet regularly with the AER and abide by all regulations.
