Draft Plan released (call for submissions)

We are excited to announce the release of our Revenue Reset Draft Plan for public consultation.

This important document details our proposed customer pricing for the 2024-29 regulatory period, along with our plans for building, operating and maintaining Tasmania’s distribution and transmission electricity networks. The Draft Plan is the precursor to our Combined Proposal, which will be submitted to the Australian Energy Regulator in January 2023.

The Draft Plan is the culmination of several years of work by over 100 specialist TasNetworks staff. Components of the Plan have also been shaped by the invaluable feedback of 200+ customers and stakeholders we’ve engaged with across the state so far.

We’ve endeavoured to create a plan that balances our customer priorities of affordability and reliability, while also enabling the adoption of new technologies - including solar generation, batteries and electric vehicles.

Draft Plan highlights

  • Customer feedback to-date, and how it has helped shape our plans
  • An overview of our transmission and distribution network strategies
  • Our preliminary expenditure forecast (4 per cent lower than the 2019-24 period)
  • Key internal and external factors influencing our forecast
  • Projects that seek to improve network reliability in poorly-performing communities
  • Initiatives to make our network more resilient against climate change.

The purpose of releasing the Plan for public consultation is to confirm we’ve listened to and understood the needs and priorities of Tasmanians as we plan the future of the electricity network. Feedback from the consultation will help us further refine our plans and thinking as we prepare the Combined Proposal for submission in early 2023.
