Energy Reform Implementation Exposure Legislation and Regulations

Amendments are required to the range of electricity-related legislation and regulations in Tasmania to implement the reform package. The legislation will implement the key and supporting features of the reform package, such as:

  • ensuring the Regulator’s functions and objectives are appropriate for the new market structure;
  • establishing regulation of Hydro Tasmania’s wholesale market activities;
  • refining retail price regulation arrangements for a competitive market;
  • reflecting the divestment of Aurora Energy and the merging of Aurora and Transend; and
  • updating the legislative framework to reflect a fully competitive market.

See link to the legislation page for more information and access to the Exposure Legislation.
