We have set the 2023-24 base rate peg for NSW councils at 3.7%.
There is also an allowance for the level of population growth, meaning some councils will have rate pegs of up to 6.8%.
IPART is reviewing the methodology we use to set the local government rate peg.
We have published an Issues Paper which sets out some of the important factors that affect how we set the rate peg, and some of the questions we have for stakeholders.
We are excited to announce our 2022 conference, which will be held on 17 November in Sydney and marks 30 years since IPART was first established.
We are seeking feedback on our issues paper on a pricing regulatory framework for interoperable electronic conveyancing transactions between Electronic Lodgment Network Operators (ELNOs).
This would include provisions on the fees they may charge other ELNOs for participating in an interoperable transaction.
We are calling for public submissions on our review of competitive neutrality policies and processes in NSW.
Competitive neutrality applies to state and local government owned businesses and aims to ensure that they do not have a competitive advantage over other businesses simply because they are government owned.
We have forecast higher solar feed-in tariffs for NSW customers in 2022-23.
Customers can expect to receive 6.2 to 10.4 c/kWh from their electricity retailer for the solar exports they feed into the grid.
We are seeking feedback on our draft decisions on the prices Essential Water can charge for water and wastewater services in Broken Hill and the surrounding areas of Menindee, Sunset Strip and Silverton.
Under IPART’s draft decisions, prices for water and wastewater services would remain stable for most customers, before inflation.
We have released our draft report on the performance and competitiveness of the NSW retail energy market in the 2021-22 financial year.
The report found that the energy market is undergoing a period of volatility with higher retail energy prices.
