Final Report for IPART's review of the regulatory framework for setting of rates and charges for Local Government services in NSW.
The Tribunal has decided that Sydney Water’s overall revenue should increase in line with movements in the consumer price index (CPI) in each year of the determination period.
In its pricing determinations, IPART uses a real rate of return to determine the cost of capital allowance of its building blocks model. This cost of capital allowance forms a substantial part of the annual revenue requirement of utilities.
