AusNet Services is undertaking this Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T) to evaluate options to maintain supply reliability in the Shepparton and Goulburn-Murray area.
The Project Specification Consultation Report (PSCR), which represents the first step in the RIT-T process in accordance with clause 5.16 of the National Electricity Rules (NER) and section 4.2 of the RIT-T Application Guidelines was published in December 2020. This report, the Project Assessment Draft Report (PADR), is the second stage of the RIT-T and provides information about the draft conclusions of the RIT-T.
No non-network proposals were received during the RIT-T PSCR consultation.
The preferred option to address the asset failure risk at SHTS is an integrated replacement of two of the three 220/66 kV transformers and selected 66 kV switchgear.
AusNet Services welcomes written submissions on the issues and the credible options presented in this PADR. Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before 23 July 2021. In the subject field, please reference ‘RIT-T PADR Shepparton Terminal Station.’
