Project Assessment Conclusion Report
Regulatory Investment Test – Transmission
AusNet Services undertook this Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T) to evaluate options to maintain reliable transmission network services at Moorabool Terminal Station (MLTS).
The Project Specification Consultation Report (PSCR), which represents the first step in the RIT-T process was published in March 2022 and the succeeding Project Assessment Draft Report (PADR) was published in August 2022. Publication of this Project Assessment Conclusions Report (PACR) represents the third and final step in the RIT-T process in accordance with clause 5.16 of the National Electricity Rules (NER) and section 4.2 of the RIT-T Application Guidelines.
No non-network proposal has been received during the RIT-T consultation.
AusNet Services concludes that Integrated replacement is the most economic option to address the identified need as it provides the highest present value of net economic benefits for all scenarios and sensitivities investigated. The optimal project completion timing is 2026/27.
