Marsden Jacob Associates (MJA) is currently working with the Western Australian Department of Treasury to review the efficiency of Community Service Obligation payments to the state’s integrated energy utility, Horizon Power. Horizon Power manages the North West Interconnected System and 33 non-interconnected systems in regional towns and remote communities in Western Australia.
MJA is to consider a range of options for funding Horizon Power’s non-commercial operations, and will involve the evaluation of appropriate parameter settings for determining future subsidy. The work will ensure subsidy payments encourage efficient operation and investment by Horizon Power in the medium term, while providing a commercial rate of return.
