Project EnergyConnect reaches the final step in the regulatory process

Project EnergyConnect (PEC) is the proposed new interconnector between NSW and South Australia that is being developed jointly by TransGrid (for the investment within NSW) and ElectraNet (for the investment within South Australia).  AEMO has identified PEC in its 2018 and 2020 Integrated System Plan as a low regret ‘actionable ISP’ project that forms part of the optimal development path for the National Electricity Market.

As the final step in the regulatory process for PEC, TransGrid has lodged a contingent project application with the AER to vary its current regulatory determination to reflect the prudent and efficient costs of the NSW portion of PEC. HoustonKemp prepared a report for TransGrid that assessed the consistency of its capex forecast with the National Electricity Rules requirements against which the AER will evaluate TransGrid’s application.
