Submissions invited - NWIS Queuing Policy Consultation Paper

NWIS Queuing Policy Consultation Paper

The Government of Western Australia intends to cover Horizon Power’s network within the North West Interconnected System (NWIS) with a new regulatory regime for third party access, to be established by the Pilbara Networks Access Code (PNAC).

Horizon Power is seeking to support the reforms by proactively preparing documentation likely to be necessary and appropriate under the new access regime. This includes documenting the processes and rules by which access applications will be are assessed in the Horizon NWIS Network.

To ensure these processes and rules take account of the views of key stakeholders, a Queuing Policy Consultation Paper (Consultation Paper) has been published by Horizon Power.  This Consultation Paper proposes a queuing model which supports an efficient and fair process for assessing and managing applications that may be in competition for existing network capacity.

Interested parties are invited to submit a response to the Consultation Paper, and in particular the proposed detailed design set out in Section 5.
