Project Assessment Draft Report – Summary

Regulatory Investment Test – Transmission – July 2024

AusNet initiated this Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T) to evaluate options to address the electricity network constraints in Wodonga – Barnawartha in north-eastern Victoria which are restricting new renewable generation connections. 

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 January 2024. This report, the Project Assessment Draft Report (PADR), is the second stage of the RIT-T process and provides information about the draft conclusions of the RIT-T.

No non-network proposals were received during the RIT-T PSCR consultation phase.

The preferred solution is commission the WOTS spare transformer and add a new WO-BWA 66 kV line in parallel with the existing line. 

AusNet welcomes written submissions on the issues and the credible options presented in this PADR. Submissions should be emailed to on or before Friday 16 August 2024. In the subject field, please reference ‘RIT-T PADR CE WOTS-BWA.’
