v Charles Darwin Centre DARWIN NT 0800 Postal Address GPO Box 915 DARWIN NT 0801 Tel (08) 8999 5480 Web www.utilicom.nt.gov.au The Honourable David Tollner MLA Treasurer Parliament House DARWIN NT 0800 Dear Treasurer In accordance with section 35 of the Utilities Commission Act (the Act), I am pleased to provide you with the Annual Report of the Utilities Commission of the Northern Territory (the Commission) for the financial year ended 30 June 2015. The Report covers: the administration of the Act during the year; activities of the Commission under the Electricity Networks (Third Party Access) Code during the year; and activities of the Commission under the Electricity Reform Act and Water Supply and Sewerage Services Act during the year. From 1 July 2015, the role of regulator and functions under the Electricity Networks (Third Party Access) Act were conferred on the Australian Energy Regulator. The 2014-15 year will be the last year that the Commission reports on its activities under this Act. In June 2015, legislation commenced providing functions for the Commission in relation to port access and price regulation. Under this regime, the Commissions functions only commence with the appointment of a private port operator for a declared port. The Commission notes that the Act provides that a copy of this report is to be tabled in the Legislative Assembly within six sittings days of receipt. Yours sincerely Dr Patrick Walsh Utilities Commissioner 30 September 2015 http://www.utilicom.nt.gov.au/
