The New Connections and Extensions Policy outlines the commercial terms Alpine Energy Limited (AEL or Alpine) applies for extensions to its network, for new connections in areas with existing supply, and for alterations to existing connections. Alpine Energy has introduced these commercial terms to apply from 22 July 2010.
Our network is continuing to grow with demand for new connections and increased loads at existing connections. To be fair and reasonable to the established consumers, we believe it's important that future network connections and extensions should pay a contribution towards the cost of the connection or extension. This document outlines the economic considerations we have incorporated when establishing these commercial terms along with the appropriate technical requirements.
Our economic aim is to apply efficient pricing policies which reflect the economic costs of providing our delivery service. With this approach, consumers (particularly prospective consumers) make efficient decisions about which form of energy to use, and where to locate new load.
