QCA INTERIM CONSULTATION PAPER – REGULATED RETAIL ELECTRICITY PRICES FOR 2020-21

QCA INTERIM CONSULTATION PAPER – REGULATED RETAIL ELECTRICITY PRICES FOR 2020-21

On 10 December 2019 the Queensland Competition Authority (QCA) received a delegation to set regulated retail electricity prices for regional Queensland from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021 from the Minister for Natural Resources, Mines and Energy, the Hon Anthony Lynham MP.
To commence the review the QCA released an interim consultation paper to seek stakeholder feedback by 13th January 2020 on how it will determine electricity prices for regional Queensland.
KCGO has lodged a submission on behalf of members, a copy of which follows for your information.
There will be further opportunity to be involved in the consultation process in early April once QCA has issued its draft determination report normally around the end of February.
