Reporting by electricity entities

Annual reports to the Regulator

All holders of electricity generation, transmission and distribution authorities and special approvals (all referred to generally as licences) are required by law to submit annual reports.

You must submit your annual report on operations for the preceding financial year to the Regulator (the Director-General of the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy) by 31 October.
