Submission to the Australian Energy Regulator

On the 30th of January 2015, SPA Consulting Engineers (QLD) Pty Ltd lodged a submission with the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) to raise issues that affect the land development industry and provide feedback and recommendations for the next five years of AER's regulation of Ergon Energy.

Some of the issues raised in the submission are as follows:

(A) The cost of retail electricity vs inflation and its affect on regional Queensland's economy

(B) The downturn in mining's effect on residential construction and the need to limit input costs

(C) The AER's light handed approach to regulation in recent years led to network over-capitalisation and high operating expenses

(D) The power inbalance between Ergon Energy and stakeholders / customers
