Ausgrid has identified that there are emerging distribution network capacity and supply security issues in the Thornton distribution load area and that corrective action will be required in the future to maintain the technical and service requirements set in accordance with Schedule 5.1 of the National Electricity Rules. The proposed corrective action will involve construction of a new small distribution network asset.
Ausgrid has issued a Distribution Final Report – “Thornton Zone Substations 11kV Development“. This report has been prepared to meet the requirements of clause 5.6.2(h) of the National Electricity Rules to inform affected Registered Participants and interested parties of the possible options identified and assessed, and the option recommended, to address projected limitations of the distribution system in this area.
The report has been published and will be available on the Ausgrid website for fourty business days following publication.
Enquires in relation to this matter are to be directed to
