Have your say on the proposed changes to Customer Payment System - Electricity (General) Regulations 2012 (the Regulations)

What's being decided?

We are inviting submissions on a proposed change to the Electricity (General) Regulations 2012 (the Regulations).

An Issues Paper has been developed to discuss the method in which charging for electricity will commence in remote Aboriginal communities of the:

  • Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands
  • Yalata on Aboriginal Lands Trust (ALT)
  • Oak Valley on Maralinga Tjarutja (MT)

We welcome your feedback on the changes to the Regulations.

Background

The Issues Paper outlines a proposed amendment to the Regulations which will require payment prior to electricity being consumed as the only payment method for the relevant customers.
