Power and Water Corporation, in its capacity as the Power System Controller, is seeking to make changes to provisions in the System Control Technical Code (Code) that relate to power system incident reporting procedures.
Section 7 of the Code currently prescribes obligations on the System Controller and System Participants in regards to reporting and investigation of power system incidents. The System Controller has determined that these provisions are not fit for purpose and should be amended to reflect good electricity industry practice.
In order to amend the Code, clause 1.8.2 requires the System Controller to consult with industry and seek approval of Utilities Commission (the Commission).
The proposed amendments are outlined in the following documents:
Submissions on the proposed amendments to Code are invited by 4 pm ACST 29 June 2021 and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Power and Water will publish all submissions received in full. Should a stakeholder consider sections of their submission as confidential, a separate public version of the submission should be provided to Power and Water for publication.
