Ring-Fencing

The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has developed the Distribution Ring-fencing Guideline. The Guideline is intended to prevent a distribution network service provider (DNSP) using its existing regulated business to hinder competition developing in related contestable electricity markets such as advanced metering and home battery systems.

Compliance strategy

You can download TasNetworks Ring-fencing Compliance Plan from the AER website.

Waiver applications

TasNetworks has applied for a number of waivers which will help minimise impacts and costs for our customers during the transitional period to full compliance with the Guideline.

These waiver applications have been approved by the AER. You can view TasNetworks Ring-fencing Waiver register here.
