AGL responded to the AEMC consultation paper on a rule change request from Infigen Energy that proposes a change to the non-energy cost recovery formulas to enable the settlement and equitable recovery of non-energy costs during low operational demand. AGL understands the request from Infigen and their proactive attempt to change the non-energy cost recovery formulae to enable settlement and the equitable recovery of funds but AGL believes that now is not the right time to be implementing changes on top on what is already a very busy period with the implementation of other new systems and processes notably the five-minute settlement and wholesale demand response and global settlements.
