Powerlink lodges its Revenue Proposal to the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) every five years. Our Revenue Proposal outlines forecast revenue requirements to provide an efficient, safe and reliable transmission service.

Powerlink lodged its Revised Revenue Proposal with the AER on 19 November 2021.

Revised Revenue Proposal

Our Revised Revenue Proposal was lodged to the AER on 19 November 2021. We have accepted almost all elements of the AER’s Draft Decision in our Revised Revenue Proposal.

We are pleased the AER considered our Revenue Proposal is capable of acceptance in its Draft Decision and accepted all major aspects of it. Similarly, our Customer Panel has now also confirmed that capable of acceptance has been met from its point of view.

Revenue Proposal

Our Revenue Proposal was lodged to the AER on 28 January 2021. We have undertaken extensive engagement with our customers, stakeholders, the AER’s Consumer Challenge Panel and AER staff on all key elements of our Revenue Proposal. This engagement occurred as part of our overarching goal to deliver a Revenue Proposal that is capable of acceptance by Powerlink's customers, the AER and ourselves. View our Revenue Proposal below.
