ERGON ENERGY CORPORATION LIMITED
FINAL REPORT – SUPPLY TO MARYBOROUGH AND HERVEY BAY AREA NOTICE OF WITHDRAWAL OF FINAL RECOMMENDATION
26 June 2014
Where the technical limits of a distribution system will be exceeded and the rectification options are likely to exceed $10M, Ergon Energy is required under the National Electricity Rules s5.6.2(f) to consult with affected Registered Participants, AEMO and Interested Parties within the time required for corrective action and meet certain requirements, including undertaking analysis that satisfies the AER’s Regulatory Test, in selection of an appropriate solution.
Ergon Energy Corporation Limited (Ergon Energy) identified emerging limitations in the electricity distribution network supplying Hervey Bay in 2009. In accordance with the requirements of the National Electricity Rules, a Regulatory Test of suitable options was undertaken, which resulted in the publication of a Final Report in November 2009.
The Final Report documented the evaluation of options and declared Ergon Energy’s intent to proceed with Option 1 which includes a number of component projects, as outlined in the following document.
Therefore, Ergon Energy has decided to withdraw these recommendations on the basis that it would not be prudent and efficient to proceed with the works.
If at some stage in the future, an identified need arises that would necessitate the delivery of an option to address that need, Ergon Energy will undertake a RIT-D assessment, if required.
