Description of Conduct

NSW is proposing derogations from the metering provisions of Chapter 7 of the Code.

The Commission granted authorisation of the derogations subject to a condition of authorisation. The authorisation enables distribution businesses to be the exclusive providers of metering services for small electricity customers in NSW. The condition of authorisation specifies that all remotely read meters will not be subject to the derogation, regardless of the frequency with which those meters are read. The derogation is to expire on 31 December 2006.
