The Commerce Commission has released their draft decision on the Aurora Energy CPP application.
They are proposing that Aurora can spend a maximum of $523 million over the next five years to replace failing infrastructure and run its network, which is a reduction of $86 million (14%) on what Aurora proposed. There will also be set performance targets, publishing an ‘Annual Delivery Report’ and to hold public meetings.
The Commerce Commission is encouraging your feedback on their draft decision which is open for consultation until 10 December 2020, before they make their final decision in March 2021.
A summary of their draft decision, consumer fact sheets, the full reasons paper and a template submission form to provide your feedback are all available here under the ‘documents’ tab.
They are also holding stakeholder meetings in Alexandra, Queenstown and Dunedin between 24 November and 1 December. You can RSVP to your nearest session by using this link.
