Consumer Protections for Behind the Meter electricity supply

Consumer Action Law Centre (Consumer Action) and Consumer Utilities Advocacy Centre (CUAC) welcome the opportunity to respond to the Council of Australian Governments Energy Council (Energy Council) consultation on consumer protections for behind the meter electricity supply.

We welcome the attention of the Energy Council to this important stream of work. A reliable, secure and affordable energy supply is essential to health, wellbeing, economic participation and social inclusion, so there is a high risk to consumers when things go wrong and supply of electricity is compromised. It is, therefore, appropriate that governments at the national and state jurisdictional level give significant attention to the regulation of this industry to protect consumer interests.
