Licence Exemption Applications

The Minister for Energy has asked Energy Policy WA to undertake a review of the regulatory framework for electricity retail licensing and exemption activities.

The review will determine the most suitable form of regulation to ensure that all electricity consumers have adequate customer protections, regardless of the business model used for the delivery of electricity supplies.

Given the intended scope of the review, the Minister for Energy has determined that retail licence exemption applications for solar power purchase agreements currently under consideration will not be processed further and no additional solar power purchase agreement licence exemption applications will be accepted.

This page provides details of electricity and gas licence exemption applications received by Energy Policy WA for assessment. Information on reviews of existing licence exemptions and related matters is also provided.

Energy Policy WA will generally publish licence exemption applications for public comment as part of the assessment process. Details of the open and closed consultations are outlined below, along with decisions on licence exemption applications.
