We are looking at how to ensure faster and more transparent electricity connections at new Victorian housing developments.
This will help people move into their new homes quicker and help understand the electricity distribution businesses' processes for managing new connections.
Options being considered include:
- placing an obligation on distribution businesses to publicly report their performance
- placing expectations on distribution businesses to regularly review the connections processes
- regulating the timeframes to undertake stages of the connections process.
We have released an issues paper exploring these options and are asking Victorians to have their say.
To determine how to make any improvements to electricity connections process sustainable, we have released an issues paper detailing the options being considered.
