Page 16 of 18 2022-23 SCI Energy By far, the largest single cost item is the cost of energy, including gas and diesel input costs, together with Power Purchase Agreement costs. The amount of fuel required to generate at power stations is based on the forecast volume output from each unit and each units efficiency based on an assumed heat rate curve. For 2022-23, the cost of delivered gas is based on the current agreement with PWC. For the purposes of the SCI, the Corporation has assumed that the current agreement will be continued with PWC, with terms and conditions substantially the same. With reducing market share, gas consumption reduces annually. These savings are not fully realised due to declining efficiency from increasing system services requirements and displacement of load from the Corporations fleet. Capital projects in the Darwin-Katherine region, including the Darwin-Katherine ESS and fleet transition plan, will reduce gas consumption. Diesel usage is based on the historical proportion of usage for the level of output for the regulated power systems and servicing the entirety of the load in Yulara and Kings Canyon. Repairs and Maintenance (R&M) R&M expenses include the cost of materials, internal and external labour. The expenses have been estimated by power station unit over the planning period and comprise planned maintenance and an allowance for unplanned maintenance. The estimated spend over the period is as follows.
