The Minister for Resources and Energy issues licences for the distribution of electricity in NSW. These licences are subject to standard conditions covering matters such as consumer protection and network reliability.
IPART administers the licensing regime on behalf of the Minister. It advises the Minister on:
- the granting, variation, transfer or cancellation of a licence
- the imposition, variation or cancellation of licence conditions
- any action to be taken for a contravention of licence conditions
- any remedial action that may be warranted as a result of a contravention of licence conditions.
IPART may also impose monetary and non-monetary penalties and take other action it considers appropriate against licensees for contravention of licence conditions.
