Network planning

Regulatory investment test projects


In order to achieve the best possible outcomes for our customers we engage and consult with all interested parties on network projects that are subject to a regulatory investment test. This is a cost-benefit test that must be applied when we assess options for solutions for network projects above $6 million  and is required under Chapter 5 of the National Electricity Rules.  

These projects relate to capital works for network expansion as well as replacement and refurbishment. Below is a list of network planning projects that are open for public consultation.

If you wish to make a submission or provide comments on the Draft Project Assessment Report, please contact

For more information about the Regulatory Investment Test process, please refer here.

We also investigate projects that are not associated with the regulatory investment test where a similar but simplified process is applied to investigate non-network solutions. These can be viewed here.  

If you are a non-network provider and are interested in being involved in our future consultation processes, then register your details on our Demand Management Engagement Register.
