Asset Commissioning and Testing Issues
About this consultation
The intent of the Code and previously the Electricity Governance Rules 2003 is that under-frequency event and instantaneous reserves availability charges should apply to all assets operating on the power system at any time. However, to date such cost recovery approaches have not applied to assets being commissioned or tested due to some inadequacies in the Code. The Authority proposes to make amendments to the Code so that the charges can be applied as intended.
The Authority invites submissions on these proposed amendments, which are included in the consultation paper.
The Authority's preference is to receive submissions in electronic format (Microsoft Word). It is not necessary to send hard copies of submissions to the Authority, unless it is not possible to do so electronically.
