IPART is to design a full cost-recovery pricing methodology for radio services under the control of the Telco Authority and to use this methodology to provide prices that users are to be charged, commencing from 1 July 2011.
IPART's final decision is to move to a post-tax cost of capital model. This final report sets out how we will move from pre-tax to a post-tax cost of capital approach using an effective rather than a statutory tax rate.
The Premier of New South Wales has asked IPART to undertake an investigation into solar feed-in tariffs. The investigation will establish a fair and reasonable value for electricity generated by small scale solar photovoltaic systems.
