Submission: Evoenergy Gas Network 2021 Draft Plan

Publication date: 
April 2020
Our submission in response to the Evoenergy Gas Network 2021 Draft Plan focused on the interests of low-income and other at-risk energy consumers in the ACT. Evoenergy’s consumer engagement identified strong community support for a just transition to zero net greenhouse gas emissions in the ACT by 2045 implemented in a way that supports vulnerable consumers. Our submission welcomes Evoenergy’s commitment to supporting vulnerable consumers while seeking further details that would provide confidence that there will be an equitable distribution of risk as the ACT transitions away from natural gas and that low-income households will not be left worse off.
