Powering Sydney's Future RIT-T

Together with Ausgrid, TransGrid is undertaking a Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T) to investigate a series of credible options to find the most reliable, affordable and sustainable solution to secure the future electricity supply for the Inner Sydney area. 

In order to assess all network and non-network options from a technical and economic perspective, we are using the Australian Energy Regulator’s Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T). The test is a formal consultation process designed to:

  • Inform stakeholders of the energy supply need and proposed options to address it
  • Test the market for alternative and more efficient solutions
  • Explain to stakeholders the basis on which the preferred option is selected.

The consultation process

The Project Assessment Draft Report (PADR) has been released and is open for consultation.

Submissions and next steps

TransGrid and Ausgrid welcome written submissions on this PADR.
