To ensure that consumers of behind-the-meter electricity services have adequate customer protections, Energy Policy WA has recommended that the Electricity Industry Act 2004 be amended to allow a customised approach to the regulation of prescribed categories of ‘alternative electricity service’ with an Alternative Electricity Service Code of Practice (AES Code). The AES Code will be supported by provisions for compliance and enforcement, and a mechanism for resolving disputes between service providers and consumers.
Behind-the-meter generation and storage services are proposed to be the first form of alternative electricity service regulated under the arrangements.
BTM Code Working Group
A working group of stakeholders (BTM Code Working Group) assisted the development of the draft BTM Code which will form the basis for consultation on the initial version of the AES Code. This consultation will occur when the legislative changes are more advanced.
The meeting materials from each meeting of the BTM Code Working Group are published below.
BTM Code Working Group Meeting 1 – 12 February 2020
BTM Code Working Group Meeting 2 – 13 March 2020
