Pilbara Networks

The Pilbara Networks Access Code was gazetted on 25 June 2021. The Code implements a light-handed access regime and establishes an independent system operator for the Pilbara region. Currently, there are two covered networks - the Alinta Energy Port Hedland Network and the Horizon Power coastal network. Under the Code, the ERA has a number of functions, including determining an initial rate of return for the networks, approving ringfencing arrangements, and administering a pool of arbitrators to consider any access disputes.
