  • Project Released: 4 Dec 2017
  • Project Closes: Dec 2018
  • Contact: Rowan McKeown


The Commission reviews the jurisdictional service standards that apply to SA Power Networks every five years, prior to the commencement of a new price regulation period. The Commission’s standards, established under the Electricity Act 1996, set reliability performance requirements for SA Power Networks.

This review will establish the reliability standards for SA Power Networks for the 2020-2025 period. Stakeholders will be given multiple opportunities to have their say. The first consultation paper, released in December 2017, outlines the process and objectives for the review. Draft standards will then be released in August 2018, with final standards to follow in December 2018.
