Joint submission by the ACT Energy Consumers Policy Consortium (comprised of representatives of ACT Council of Social Service (ACTCOSS), Care Financial Counselling Service, Conservation Council ACT Region, SEE-Change and the Small Business Taskforce of the Canberra Business Chamber)

In this submission on the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) Issues Paper - March 2018 - Evoenergy Distribution Determination 2019 to 2024, the Consortium requests that the AER reviews the regulatory proposal from Evoenergy from the perspective of people experiencing poverty and disadvantage, and from small business and community organisation customers with small margins and inelastic demand. The Consortium also requests the AER provide advice on any changes that are needed in the proposal to enable these customers to sustain access to the essential service of electricity.
