Regulatory Proposal document library

We provided important information on our future investment plans to the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) in our Regulatory Proposal.

This helped the AER to determine what we are allowed to charge customers to use our network from 2015 to 2020.

The key documents are below.

Our original Regulatory Proposal included the following suite of documents detailing our future investment plans as well as information on other regulatory matters.
