EnergyAustralia have paid an $8,117 penalty for surrendering 170 fewer Victorian energy efficiency certificates for the 2018 year than required.
EnergyAustralia shortfall statement 2019
In August 2019, EnergyAustralia paid a penalty of $8,117.50 after we issued the company with a Victorian energy efficiency certificate shortfall statement.
Under the Victorian Energy Upgrades program, energy retailers must surrender certificates in proportion to the volume of electricity and gas they sell to Victorian customers.
EnergyAustralia paid this penalty because we found that the number of Victorian energy efficiency certificates they surrendered for the 2018 (983,385 in total) was 170 short of their liability for the year.
